We’ve heard quite a few discussions like this one from Linked In which mentions needs for additional training and experience AFTER a 4-year (or even 8-year) degree.
At Golden Hour we’ve been researching what types of courses professionals, volunteers, and the public can attend. We’ve been considering barriers to access like cost, admission, expectations and location. Luckily in the Bay Area, there are quite a few opportunities to develop and hone skills in restoration science, but these opportunities tend to be scattered. Our goal is to work as the glue that can create a successful programs from a myriad of disjoined, but inspired opportunities. Please stay tuned as we develop a Restoration Certification with local partners.
