On-Line Sustainability Training Opportunities from the SLC

The Sustainability Learning Centre's (SLC) new e-learning Sustainability Education Series has over 50, 15 minute modules that focus on Green Core Competencies. The 50 modules range from Sustainability Planning to Green Fleet and Supply Chain Management.  Each module is 15 minutes, self-directed and complete with “tests for understanding”.  Participants can gain recognition toward sustainability learning certification.

Each training module provides information and directions for facilitating and developing key sustainability initiatives. Many companies and human resource executives require certain methodologies for on line training and the series meets these requirements as the courses are SCORM compliant, is of the highest quality in design and includes narration, graphics, and superior tests for knowledge.
