IAIA offers 8-12 training courses each year in conjunction with its annual conference. These one- or two-day courses cover a range of aspects regarding impact assessment and may be beginner, intermediate, or advanced in level. Specific courses offered at each conference can be viewed at the home page for each conference, under the "Training Courses" heading. Some recent course titles include:
The call for training courses is issued each May or June for the following year's conference. (See a sample here.) Course proposals are vetted by IAIA's Training and Professional Development Committee, and the selected courses are promoted in the online preliminary program materials and the home page for that conference.
Historically, IAIA has offered training courses ONLY in conjunction with our annual conferences. Now, thanks to a program developed by IAIA's Training and Professional Development Committee (TPDC), you may see IAIA's logo on some of these same courses offered outside of our annual conference.
If you see a special IAIA-endorsement logo on a course flyer, that means the course has been vetted by the TPDC and was delivered successfully (as measured by participant evaluations) at an IAIA conference or special event within the past six years. This is a new program, and we look forward to being able to offer an increasing number of training courses to impact assessment professionals around the world.
Long-time IAIA member, Dr. Larry Canter, and his company, Environmental Impact Training, have made his online training courses at EIA Campus available free of charge to past and current IAIA members from developing countries and countries in transition. Interested individuals should email firstname.lastname@example.org listing their name, country, and desired training course series to see if they qualify for free access.
When you sign up for a series, you will be able to access any or all of the courses in that series. The series available include:
