Green jobs are growing, offering new opportunities for people looking to build or retool their careers in this expanding area of the economy. In response to the growing need for “Green Collar” professionals, the Division of Corporate and Community Programs at County College of Morris has developed a Certificate in Sustainable Practices.
The four-course program provides students with training in managing energy and water consumption, sustainability reporting, meeting profit and environmental goals, and environmentally preferred purchasing. Three of these courses have an on-line option.
The certificate program is geared toward individuals who are looking to take their career to a new level, in-transition white collar professionals seeking to differentiate themselves in the market, municipal employees committed to Sustainable Jersey or other green efforts, and participants in the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment.
Another course, Transition from White Collar to Green Collar, helps educate individuals about making this change.
