Water Conservation & Management – Diploma – Vermilion Campus

EMP* Testimonials

"I have always known that I wanted a career dealing with the environment. Joining EMP was the best choice I have ever made. All of my classes were extremely hands-on, comparing ponds, creating a map of the Vermilion Provincial Park or learning how to identify plants. I have already applied so much knowledge that I learned in just one year in EMP to my job I am working at now."

"The Environmental Monitoring and Protection major has prepared me very well. My first summer job was an internship at the Syncrude Research Center and I was able to play an important role.

Ten high school students were supervised by me as the Environmental Program Coordinator. I provided training to the students in the areas of botany, limnology and aquatic invertebrates, geology, and fisheries each with the inclusion of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangiit (Inuit Traditional Knowledge)."

Out of everything I do and accomplish at work on a day to day basis, the most valuable tool I use is my education. My education has given me the tools and knowledge not only to find a career in the field I went to school for, but also to excel within it.

Nciole Pysh in front of a white Alberta Environment truckI have always been concerned about the environment and when this program was brought to my attention I knew that this is what I wanted to do. The class sizes are small and the professors are always available if you need help. There are a lot of extracurricular activities to get involved with and it was very easy to make good friends.

Lynne Barlow Lakeland CollegeMy first summer job was spent working at a pulp mill as an environmental technician. I was responsible for testing of the effluent water and checking meter readings to laboratory results. The summer of 2006 I was able to find a job working with Natural Resources in Queensland Australia. My job consisted of working in lands where I monitored water levels, measured leaf area in broccoli, and did computer modeling dealing with soil water relationships.
