Zero Waste Principles & Practices Certification Program
For over 40 years CRRA has been a leader in Zero Waste education in California. Now, joining forces with SWANA, CRRA offers a new professional development course that will certify professionals in Zero Waste Principles and Practices throughout North America.
The online course is four (4) hours a day for five (5) consecutive days.
The Zero Waste Principles & Practices certification course provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of rapidly emerging public and private sector Zero Waste programs and the key principles that support these programs. The course also provides tools to help draw together aspects of existing programs and new efforts into community-specific Zero Waste Programs.
We’re committed to educating professionals working in the industry and to moving the industry as a whole from a focus on solid waste management to resource management.
