If there is a field component assigned to your class, you can complete this at a local park, job site or other accessible location. Our instructors stand ready to guide you through the entire data collection process. You can discuss with your instructor technical questions and share photos and other field data to ensure that you have mastered the skills needed for the class. We want you to succeed and we are available for you to make this happen.
We offer serval ways to interact with the class and the instructor. Each class incudes forum discussion boards that allow you to have an asynchronous conversation about a subject or topic. You also have a direct messaging portal that lets you have a private conversation with the instructor or individual class members. Our live video conferencing enables you to share your data, ask questions and network with other wetland professionals.
Upload the field data you collect to our state-of-the-art class portal for instructor review and feedback. All data sent through our portal is secured through encryption and redundantly backed up. You can be assured that we will not lose your data or have it compromised in any way.
Each class concludes with a review of your field work (if applicable) and a final exam. Upon successful completion of the class and achieving a grade of 80% or better, a certificate recognized by the Society of Wetland Scientists will be issued to you.
In addition, Professional Development Hours (PDHs) are available for our classes. These PDHs can be used as continuing education credit for many disciplines including engineers, surveyors, architects, attorneys, geologists, hydrologists, inspectors, and many more. If you need PDHs, just let us know and we will work with you to fit your needs.
