    After recently completing an honors degree in biology, I didn’t feel quite ready to enter the work force. The Environmental Technician program gave me the additional skills that I was looking for. It offers a hands-on approach to learning skills and concepts, which can then be applied to almost any environmentally related career. This program opened my eyes to a number of careers that I would have never thought of before. An all-around excellent program that I would recommend to anyone interested in the environmental field.
