DescriptionStudents receive a Diploma of Renewable Resources Management (RRMT) after successfully completing a total of 22 academic courses over a two-year period as well as non-credit courses in Winter Travel and Survival, Wilderness First Aid and Firearms Safety. Most of these courses are delivered in a classroom setting with an emphasis on practical techniques acquired during mandatory labs, short field trips and three separate 10-day field courses. Team and individual projects, discussions and presentations are important aspects of program delivery. Practising managers from the community frequently assist with the teaching.

Students take a set of core courses in first year that develop competencies in areas such as: data collection; oral and written communication; computer use; mapping; and basic biology. Two field courses between first and second year offer the chance to gain field experience, while many of the second year courses emphasize practical management aspects and give students the opportunity to choose from a series of electives.
