Website Short Description
Energy availability is a real concern for everyone. Without energy or with access to much less energy than we currently use, we could not live in the same way, and life would not be easy. As an Sustainability Professional you will learn about this new "green" paradigm, where energy plays a central role in our lives. Building an energy future which assures ample supplies of energy to meet our needs should be a major priority and of concern to all. Energy supply is a complex subject and many considerations come into play: science, technology, the economy, politics, the environment, energetic independence, national security, and so on.
This course exposes the student to financially, environmentally, and socially responsible objectives that are supported by strategies and achieved by clear tactics that have measurable outcomes. The student is introduced to methods of implementing technologies and practices and will also learn how to measure the consequent social and environmental performance for written reports and persuasive presentations.
Sustainability Professionals are dedicated to the practice of environmental and social responsibility in ways that achieve financial stability over the long run. In this course the student will understand not just why businesses need to be more responsible but how businesses can be more successful over the long run. International standards are given full treatment. ISO 26000 is given detailed attention, slightly more than ISO 9000 or ISO 14000, because it melds guidance on both environmental and social responsibility into one general concept of social responsibility.
This course also specifies how to use traditional methods such as Six Sigma, lean, and operations research to improve processes, reduce resource use and waste, and make better social and environmental decisions that are based upon data from key financial, social, and environmental performance indicators. Armed with the knowledge from this course you can form educated and informed opinions on the future of energy and its impact on the economy, health, and the environment.
Though this program is a self-paced program it is supported by an educational mentor. Educational mentors are subject matter experts who have years of experience in their field as well as the necessary educational training and credentials to work as an expert. The mentor is available to answer any questions a learner may have including questions on course content, course material, certifications, and even industry questions. Mentors also monitor the progress of learners to ensure training retention and program advancement. In eLearning, motivation is a key tool to success. Because of this, mentors provide encouraging comments, feedback, and coaching to motivate learners throughout the duration of the program to support completion and success!
