NOTES:

  1.  It is strongly recommended that students interested in environmental education become certified in first aid, first responder, wilderness first responder, emergency medical technician or other emergency medical training. This can be done through PE 107 at Olivet College or other training programs outside the college. Many environmental education employers require at least basic first aid training. Obtaining such certification can strengthen a graduate’s job application.

  2. BIO 209 Ecology for Pre-Service Teachers is held at Pierce Cedar Creek Institute as a three week residential field-based course at the Institute near Hastings.
