How do you become a sustainability professional?

We believe that every business should have at least one qualified Sustainability Officer. By studying the Diploma of Sustainable Operation with us you can become this person. During the course, you will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of our industry partners and gain access to paid/unpaid traineeships, online support, and will complete projects with workplace applications. We offer face to face delivery at our Byron Bay campus and online via our learning platform for those unable to attend campus.
