SAIT is one of Canada’s top applied research colleges and an international leader in multi-disciplinary applied research and innovation. We've partnered with Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery to develop and deliver this new Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Certificate of Completion to help prepare you and your employer as the oil and gas industry continues shifting toward more sustainable practices.

This program offers seven micro-credential courses that concentrate on different aspects of CCS. They are tailored to upskill and expand your industry experience and role capabilities. You can easily access real-world learning and complete courses online, all while benefitting from the knowledge of our professionally trained SAIT instructors. Start with Introduction to Carbon Capture and Storage (it is a prerequisite for all courses) and then take any remaining courses as they apply to you and your interests.

You must be a minimum of 18 years of age at the time you start the first course for this program. There are no other specific admission requirements (academic and/or work experience). Any industry-related experience you already have will be beneficial.

Program cost: For a limited time, tuition is fully funded by Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery. Choose a course section that has a start AND end date before March 31, 2024. Course sections that start/end after March 31 have a tuition fee attached. All course materials are included.

Funding opportunities: Learn more about how to pay for or reduce your education/training costs, including the Canada Alberta Job Grant.

Delivery formats: Each course in this program is delivered online (asynchronously) and accessible in the Brightspace(D2L) learning platform. Learn more about our delivery formats.

Micro-credentials: Each course in this program is eligible for a digital badge, a great way to communicate your accomplishments and skills through your social networks. Learn more about SAITMicro.

Program completion: A non-credit SAIT Certificate of Completion and transcript will be electronically issued to you upon successful completion of a minimum of two courses (one being ENVS-011 Introduction to Carbon Capture and Storage). Learn more about SAIT credentials.

You can take one or a few courses at a time and in any order. Note prerequisites. We recommend registering as soon as possible (7-14 days) in advance of the course start date. Payment is by Visa or Mastercard upon registration.
