The case studies will touch on applications that help improve safety, increase efficiency, and provide better solutions to common issues.  Examples of what students will learn include ‘robot sniffers’ that detect gaseous contaminants or how 5G hospital clinicians, with the aid of a VR headset, are able to visualize exactly what the paramedic sees in the ambulance and remotely direct the paramedic, with a joystick, in real-time to perform any necessary procedures.  They will also learn how IoT can help protect and sustain our fragile world by collecting valuable information about ocean pollution, climate change, and biodiversity. The course is open to anyone interested in learning how IoT can be utilized in key market segments. It is geared toward people who wish to explore career opportunities, upskill, or want to increase their understanding of digital transformation. It is also an excellent course for executives and decision-makers who are called upon to evaluate and implement IoT solutions in a wide range of sectors – public and private. With better data available and new ways to use data, IoT is providing innovative ways to creatively solve new challenges and address and fix old problems.  This course shines a light on how IoT is changing the way we work and live.

Sustainable Project Management in Transportation

This 3-day course educates and trains learners on best practices for managing projects in a sustainable and regenerative way. The course introduces project management fundamentals such as the triple constraint, product scope vs. work scope, stakeholder engagement, budgeting, and monitoring. However, it differentiates from other courses by detailing best practices in sustainable project management based on the GPM P5 Standard, which encompasses environmental considerations in the areas of People, Planet, Profit, Product, and Process. Using case studies and examples from the transportation and logistics industry, this course teaches learners the Projects Integrating Sustainable Methods (PRISM) approach to managing the full project life cycle, integrating it with their organization’s existing practices. Learners will be equipped to identify and mitigate risks in areas such as reducing carbon emissions in supply chains, implementing DEI hiring practices, assessing a project’s impact on local ecosystems, and creating local economic benefits, among other considerations. By applying these principles and strategies, learners will develop the skills and knowledge needed to lead sustainable projects in the transportation and logistics industry and beyond. Upon successful completion of the course and associated examination, the learners will receive GPM-b Certification from Green Project Management in addition to the Statement of Achievement from Algonquin College.
