About this microcredential

Dive into this 60-hour online course and learn with the support of an industry-experienced instructor about the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2 and implications for long-term carbon sequestration; regulations, approaches and technologies; site planning, modelling and monitoring; data analytics and verification. This course has been designed to upskill personnel to apply their skills and knowledge to the emerging field of MMV of sequestered carbon including those with experience in:

  • Subsurface and reservoir modelling and monitoring,
  • Geoscience,
  • Well planning,
  • Data analytics, and
  • Regulatory reporting and compliance.

This microcredential is one of seven individual microcredentials that together comprise a Carbon Capture Certificate, a stacked microcredential program that allows learners to develop in-demand skills in Carbon Capturing. Upon successful completion of 30 hours taken in these stackable courses, up to a maximum of 143 hours, learners can obtain this Certificate of Completion.

What will you learn?

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the fundamental characteristics and properties of CO2 and implications for long-term under-ground carbon sequestration.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the regulations, principles and objectives associated with monitoring, measuring and verifying sequestered carbon emissions.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the dimensions required for carbon sequestration project and site-specific MMV plans including monitoring techniques to track the behaviour of injected CO2 and demonstrate containment.
  • Describe the different approaches and technologies used for monitoring and measuring atmospheric, biospheric, hydrosphere and geospheric conditions around underground carbon storage sites.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of modelling to predict the performance of injected carbon behaviour.
  • Describe how to conduct data analytics to verify that CO2 sequestration sites are conforming to regulatory permits.
  • Describe emissions accounting and reporting requirements.

You’ll demonstrate your skill and knowledge acquisition through quizzes, written assignments, and exams. This online course is structured and guided. All coursework must be completed as per the course schedule and no later than the course end date.

SAIT courses that qualify for a microcredential are assigned a Letter Grade. Students will earn a digital badge from our partner Credly upon successful completion of the microcredential course.

How does this prepare you for the low carbon economy?

Canada’s target is to reduce emissions by 40-45% below 2005 levels by 2030. One of Canada’s greatest opportunities to reduce emissions is CCS.

A qualified talent pool is required to increase the scalability and affordability of CCS as a pathway to net zero. Workers that know how to design, construct, operate and maintain CCS infrastructure are needed. This includes engineers, geoscience professionals, operators, trades and technologists, and energy services personnel.

CCS technology advancements offer Canada’s workforce career transition and development opportunities. There are sufficient similarities between the skills and knowledge required for the CCS value chain and existing industries to enable workers to acquire necessary CCS skills through microcredentials and participate in the important work associated with progressing Canada’s low-carbon economy.
