In our certificate program you'll be studying a broad range of topics related to global warming, climate change, skyrocketing energy costs, lifestyle choices and the possibilities of renewable energy and implications of conservation. You'll learn about energy use and availability, energy audits and conservation practices. The diploma program goes a step further and is geared for someone who wants a career in renewable energy. You'll study renewable energy systems, system installation, water management and building design. Both programs are offered online, giving you the option of full-time and part-time study (Although you do need to commit to about 10 -15 hours a week per course).
