Advanced Air Quality Monitoring

This course will investigate the nature and impacts of air quality (AQ) and air pollution (AP), both in general and in Alberta, more particularly in the Fort McMurray region. The course will cover the fundamentals of air AQ and AP, causes, pathways, human impact, risk, and mitigating initiatives.  This course is intended for recent graduates of an environmental technology diploma, or for individuals with equivalent prior training who wish to deepen their knowledge of air quality monitoring.
