TRAINING & VOLUNTEER SKILL-BUILDING OPPORTUNITIES

SALMTEC’s ABWRET-A Training Course

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN
Alberta Wetland Rapid Evaluation Tool is a standardized method for assessing  the important natural functions of all types of wetlands present in Alberta. Use of this method is a requirement through the Government of Alberta's Wetland Policy where Water Act approval is sought and wetlands will be permanently impacted. A strong understanding of this tool is required at three sign-off points in the Water Act approval process for wetlands, at the pre-disturbance stage, at the wetland restoration design stage and at the final verification stage. This course provides an in-depth understanding of the concepts used in ABWRET, as well as hands on training for completing the ABWRET forms and understanding the Excel® spreadsheet (ABWRET-A tool).

SALMTEC is pleased to present our new course format, which includes online training modules instructed by Dr. Paul Adamus, the creator of ABWRET, AND a one-day field training component, led by Dr. Paul Adamus. Visit www.salmtec.com for more details.


Wetland and Riparian Ecology and Management
January 9 - April 28, 2017

This 15-week course will provide a thorough introduction to wetland and riparian ecology of the Rocky Mountain and Northern Great Plains as well as the regulations and public mandates that guide their management, and the human and global disturbances that continue to shape these systems. The course is designed to provide a clear interpretation of technical information to educators; tribal, state and local regulatory staff; and consultants; and anyone who is interested in these ecosystems. We will cover the fundamentals through guided readings and discussions of text book chapters, technical reports and manuals, and peer-reviewed literature. This course is co-sponsored by the Land Resources and Environmental Sciences Department and the Water Center.

e-Learning Course: Economic Literacy for a Green Economy

March 1, 2017

The Sustainability Network's program consists of a series of six modules that will build organizational capacity by increasing the knowledge and understanding of economic concepts and their role in supporting a green economy. The training stream takes a case-based approach to address key economic concepts, their assumptions, key measures and gaps, and their strengths and limitations. In particular, participants will learn about the latest innovations in economics that are relevant to:

  • Assessing the strengths and limits of markets
  • Valuing unpriced environmental benefits and damages
  • Rewarding pro-environmental behaviour
  • Reconciling trade-offs to inform public decisions
  • (Re)defining economic progress and sustainability
  • Reorienting the economy for the 21st Century.

Learn at your own pace, in your preferred setting, with specially developed video tutorials and quizzes plus live one-on-one coaching from a professional economist. No prior knowledge or experience in economics is necessary.
