Overview

About the Level 3 Conservation Certificate

As the earth's population increases, the human race is using more and more materials. This is why conservation is more important than ever. In order to protect the planet and limit the damage we are causing to the environment, we must learn to preserve our resources. The Level 3 Conservation certificate aims to equip students with the awareness, knowledge and skills they need to make positive change in the world.

During the course of their studies, students will undertake eight separate modules. Each unit outlines a different factor affecting the environment and summarises ways to combat environmental damage. Students will cover topics such as deforestation, pollution, water and soil, fisheries management and marine conservation.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for people with a strong interest in the environment. Whether you want to work in the environmental sector or you simply strive expand your own knowledge of the subject, this course will help you to make positive change.

At learndirect, you do not need prior qualifications before you enrol on one of our distance learning courses. For this course, all we ask is that you are enthusiastic about conservation and have the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of the threats currently posed to our environment. You will be able to identify effective methods of conservation and be able to apply these in a number of situations.

Following this course, you may choose to embark on further study. There are a range of additional environmental courses offered by learndirect which may interest you. Alternatively you may decide to study conservation at an undergraduate level.
