Natural Resources and Forest Technology Courses

In this nationally accredited program students study a core of forest technology courses enhanced by studies of wildlife and fish habitats, bird identification, indigenous plants, First Nations issues, outdoor recreation/tourism, and Earth sciences. The core of traditional, forest based courses includes technical skills such as measurements, forest protection/health, forest operations and silviculture. All of these studies build on a fundamental understanding of ecology, plant biology, soils, math, English, digital mapping, and GIS. As well, you will learn writing and presentation skills, including conducting research, completing data analysis, writing and presenting scientific reports. Students may also take the opportunity to travel for a three-week field school (past destinations have included China, Costa Rica and Ecuador) where students compare approaches to land management with that of BC. Students need a minimum "D" grade for all courses in order to continue with the program. Students who successfully complete the program with at least a 2.0 grade point average are qualified to receive a Natural Resources and Environmental Technology Diploma by applying to the Office of the Registrar. An NRET diploma will allow you to be eligible to register with Association of BC Forest Professionals and/or the College of Applied Biologists. The College offers more than $15,000 in forest/resource-based scholarships and bursaries exclusively to students in this program
