WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

  • Testimonial
    Louise Dowie, Environmental Scientist at WESSA

    I now have a better understanding of the process behind developing an environmental policy & strategy for a corporate company. The course was well worth my time & money and I look forward to putting into practice what I've learnt.

  • Testimonial
    Karlien de Bruin , GraySwan Investments

    The Carbon Footprint Analyst course was one of the best courses I have ever attended. The course was really practical and after the course you should be able to apply what was learnt. The lecturer also shared his knowledge and experience that he picked up while working in the field which added extra weight to the course material.

  • Testimonial
    Steve Hearder -  Product Development Officer, Eskom

    I would just like to thank Terra Firma for a great Measurement and Verification course, this was possibly the best course that I have done.

  • Testimonial
    Lebogang Malatsi - Environmental Reporting Dept, Tiger Brands

    Great course which was well presented. Group discussions were insightful and the lecturer knew her subject very well.

  • Testimonial
    Edwin Makushu - Senior Ecopreneur, Food & Trees for Africa

    This course should be added as one of the core modules in high institutions' environmental qualifications. I plan to use the skills I learned to calculate and report on Carbon footprints of big industries in South Africa. Seeing that the carbon tax will be phased as from January 2016, every company will need a detailed report of its footprint.

  • Testimonial
    Isabella Daly - Environmental Manager, Canon SA

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course. The facilitator was very knowledgeable and approachable. I would recommend this course to anybody interested in the subject.

  • Testimonial
