The Environmental Technician - Field and Lab program offered at Niagara College has given me a chance to gain a new skill set and has provided me with the knowledge necessary to discover new and exciting career opportunities.
This is a paid co-operative education work term, in which students are able to integrate their academic learning in the workplace. It is an opportunity to increase their knowledge and develop further skills and abilities outside of the classroom setting. Successful completion of the co-op work term is mandatory for graduation from a co-op program.
Hands-on training includes co-op experience, practical exercises in on-campus environmental labs and on the college grounds, off-campus lab sessions and field trips College partners with Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority Graduates with relevant experience can seek Canadian Environmental Practitioner in Training (CEPIT), Water Quality Analyst (WQA) and Certified Technician (OACETT) c
