SPRING  2017 COURSES IN EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT & BUILDING ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES      

The Environmental Technology Programs at Wright College grants degrees and certificates to students pursuing careers in the energy efficiency, sustainability, emergency management, and environmental, health & safety sectors, with an emphasis on anticipating future directions in these fields. The progressive, hands-on credit curricula are accredited by the Illinois Community College Board (accreditation for the Urban Agroecology AAS and Certificate is pending as of today's date), and other training within the Programs result in various trade and/or agency certifications and acknowledgements: 

Students interested in Emergency Management can pursue one or more Basic Certificate programs: Homeland Security, Incident Command, and Emergency Preparedness. A new track, in coordination with the Transportation Security Administration was introduced in Fall 2013, and is now open to at-large students as well. Upon completion of the basic certificate requirements students may go on to A.A.S. Degree completion. In addition to advanced concepts of emergency management, classes in the Degree program are designed to provide basic general educational skills needed by Emergency Managers today.         

Spring 2017 Courses:      

  • ENVR TC 106 – Introduction to Terrorism – Thursday Evenings, 5:30PM
  • ENVR TC 115 – Introduction to Weapons of Mass Destruction – Saturday Mornings, 9:00AM                                                                   

Wright offers a Certificate in Building Energy Technologies, a program designed to incorporate sustainability and energy efficiency concepts into building construction, retrofitting, and operations, but applies to a much broader range of career paths. It includes topics such as building commissioning, LEED, Building Operator Certification, and renewable energy installations.           

Spring 2017 Courses:

In addition to campus classes with garden and green roof components, under a special agreement with the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign, Wright College also offers online curricula in Agroecology, courses focused on various science topics in agriculture and sustainability, to address the emerging employment field in urban agriculture. The weekly online classes conducted are instructed by an Agriculture School (College of ACES) Professor from UIUC. This is an outstanding opportunity for any students hoping to transfer to UIUC during their academic career
