Course Topics

Free eBook: Top Skills in Demand

We asked employers, employees and industry stakeholders to determine the skills required to build a successful career in the environmental sector. 686 participants from government, industry and academia provided insights that have been analyzed and provide valuable insights on:​

  • Top skills environmental employers demand​
  • Skill requirements by experience level​
  • How to create a learning path​
  • Solutions for success​

​Hint: Junior employees often lack essential skills; this gap exists because many academic curricula are not able to significantly cover them, and workers are expected to develop on the job.​
