Environmental Aboriginal Training for Your Community


BEAHR Training Programs
Train your local community members
by hosting any of BEAHR Training Programs' six workforce training or two comprehensive technician training programs designed for Aboriginal communities and individuals. These short-term, employment-focused training programs range in length from 4 to 16 weeks and can help meet your community's environmental needs.


Choose from the following Aboriginal Training Programs:

  • Land Use Planning – 4 weeks*
  • Solid Waste Coordinator – 5 weeks
  • Local Environmental Coordinator – 12 weeks
  • Environmental Site Assessment Assistant – 7 weeks
  • Contaminated Sites Remediation Coordinator – 7 weeks
  • Environmental Monitor Training Program – 5 or 7 weeks
  • Certificate of Applied Environmental Techniques – 15 weeks
  • Certificate of Environmental Planning and Administration – 16 weeks


*A Two-Day Land Use Planning Seminar is now available, please contact BEAHR Training Programs for more information.


These training programs are a series of culturally relevant community-based programs available for delivery nationwide.


All programs are designed for Aboriginal learners (First Nation, Métis, and Inuit). They are inclusive of Aboriginal culture and local knowledge, involve the participation of Elders, and are intended to be adaptable, and therefore able to address any community’s specific needs. The programs have been offered over 100 times by our 35 approved licensed trainers.


Graduates from all programs receive a certificate of successful completion jointly issued by ECO Canada and the licensed trainer. The graduates are equipped with the basic tools and skills to work at an assistant level for any company or organization—they may also choose to continue their environmental education at a local college.
 

“The BEAHR program has increased my understanding of the environmental requirements for public and industry. I think that the courses complement my education and the hands on field work made the experience more meaningful.”
