To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. Spring and Summer PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Students learn skills to raise arguments about stakeholder consultation, methods used to evaluate impacts of a new or an existing project on ecosystems, conditions of acceptance of that project, and present critiques in a professional manner.
