National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): CertDepartment: Environment and Society Department
College: S.J. & Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources
The Department of Environment and Society at Utah State University and the Shipley Group, Inc. formed a partnership to provide a certificate program that offers training related to the National Environmental Policy Act. NEPA is an important environmental law that requires analysis of impacts, alternatives, and mitigation measures for all major federal actions affecting the environment, both within the territorial boundaries of the United States and at foreign military installations.
The NEPA certificate program was designed to prepare natural resource and environmental professionals to meet the challenges of complying with the act and working effectively on NEPA documents. All courses are offered in the short-course format of either two or three consecutive eight-hour days, depending on the course.
