Foundations of Impact Assessment Online Course - starts 28 January
IAIA is offering a 12-week “Foundations of Impact Assessment” online course from 28 January through 19 April 2019. Participants start and complete the course within this period according to the schedule they arrange with their trainer.
Applications for the course are open now until 14 January 2019. The “Foundations of IA” course in EIA is the first in a planned series of online courses as part of IAIA’s Professional Development Program (PDP). It is designed for early-career professionals with some EIA experience and covers the basic principles and objectives of EIA, its core concepts and methods, and the fundamentals of EIA review processes and study management. The course adopts a comprehensive definition of “environment” to include the physical, biological, resource use, social, cultural, health, and economic dimensions of the project environment. Each course participant also receives personal support from an experienced IAIA trainer, especially through several online video conferences. The course should take about 20-30 hours to complete, and the cost is US$595.
