Enhancement of professional education in solid waste management in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
The enhancement of professional education in SWM was through the offering of a 1-year post-baccalaureate degree Diploma in Environmental Resource Management and Technologies major in Solid Waste Management. It officially started in June 2012 with 25 enrollees in the first semester under Certificate in Environmental Planning and Socio-Economics; 18 of whom are SWM focal persons of different LGUs in Western Visayas and 7 are from other government offices or private sector. Enrolment in the Second Semester offering of Certificate in Environmental Management and Technology, which officially started in November 2012, increased to 28 students (18 LGUs/10 others). The classroom approach became a suited venue for intense interaction between students together with guest lecturers on SWM-related topics. The positive reception of the program, therefore, ensures a permanent venue for developing the capabilities of existing and future SWM practitioners by a qualified institution in the province and neighboring regions.
