A Certificate Program for Laboratory Chemist - Environmental Engineering is a requisite for B.Sc. Chemistry or Microbiology graduates that lack many practical skills required at Environmental Laboratory for quick and efficient analysis of crucial parameters for water and wastewater, air, and solid waste. The engineering graduates and postgraduates with Environmental subjects will not be available exclusively as laboratory assistants and further, there are many intricacies involved while testing as per IS or APHA standards which are not mastered during studies in most of the cases. Looking at the need for Environmental Impact Assessment made compulsory by the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MoEF) and prevailing Environmental Audit Scheme of GPCB there is and will be a need for trained chemists for environmental engineering laboratories. This short-term course is the best opportunity to work in a fully furnished laboratory with all the latest instruments and develop skills much in demand
6 months including practical / project work.
Rs.10,000 for Indian Students and $180 for International Students
12th Pass / Diploma / Graduate / Post Graduate in Civil / Environmental Discipline, Government Officials, Aspirants from Foreign Countries with Bachelor's Degree or equivalent, Entrepreneurs (SMEs, MSMEs), Consultants, Academicians, Any other Professional can enroll in this course
Upon successful completion, students will have the skills and knowledge to:
Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of techniques and psychomotor skills required in the laboratory.
Exposure to the various instruments (UV/Visible spectrophotometer, 6 digit balance, Stack monitoring kit, PM2.5, and PM10 analysis, Vacuum filtration, etc. including all basic instruments, etc.) for laboratory work with the know-how of how to integrate the same in the quality measurement with safety.
Design and use effectively the formats required at various stages of lab work either for approval or record keeping.
