Leaders in sustainability training, with industry recognized Certificate Training Programs, we have over a dozen custom developed courses ranging from beginner to expert level. We can provide you with the tools and the knowledge needed to competently evaluate environmental impacts and make informed decisions that avoid trade-offs.
We offer a wide range of online training classes, from those new to LCA to experienced practitioners looking to expand their knowledge and skills. Join a regularly offered class (see our Class Calendar) or schedule a course at your convenience for a small fee. Educational discounts are available. Our courses are highly interactive and include time for Q&A. PDFs of the slides and accompanying hands-on exercises are provided, as well as a temporary SimaPro license, if needed.
New Application of LCA Certificate Program
We are pleased to share that we have a new certificate program, Application of LCA, intended for executives, corporate sustainability professionals, product managers, MBA students, undergraduate and graduate students in sustainability fields, among others! In three interactive online sessions participants will learn what the life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology is and what questions it can answer. Multiple case studies will be presented, with ample discussion and class exercises.
The certificate program also includes hands-on exercises in the world’s leading LCA software, SimaPro, giving participants an important “behind the scenes” experience in what goes into building an LCA model. Additionally, participants will learn a framework for LCA reports while exploring the nuance of communicating LCA results with different audiences.
“Consumers are increasingly aware of where their products come from, and having the toolkit to assess a product lifecycle is tremendously valuable for future sustainability professionals. We are grateful for our relationship with LTS and look forward to continuing to offer this certificate to our students in years to come.” -Caroline Hauser, Director of the Sustainable Innovation MBA, University of Vermont
