  1. Hi there,

    I am interested in taking the Environmental Monitoring Cert online. I am looking into options for funding support and am hoping for some information. I could not find the program on the Student Aid BC loan application, so I am assuming that I do not qualify for a loan based on not reaching the full-time requirements. Are there any other options as a student? Does your institution offer academic funding support? Am I eligible as a distance student for awards or scholarships?

    I am also interested in taking the practical portion of the program. Are there other students on a wait-list? What is the timeline for something like this?
