ECO Canada's Essential Skills Certificate Programs

ECO Canada has launched two new certificate programs designed to support the growth and advancement of professionals in the environmental sector. Thanks to the generous funding of the Office of Literacy and Essential Skills, we are able to offer these programs at a nominal cost to employers across Canada.

The goal of the program is to collect data on the impacts of essential skills training on employee and business development, while supporting employers to help attract, retain and engage their employees.

Certificate Program Outlines
Both certificate programs are self-directed, web-based training. Employees can work at their own pace and the training typically takes 15-20 hours to complete.
