Land Agent Licensing

In Alberta, a person must be a licensed land agent to negotiate with a landowner for certain surface or right of way agreements. Typically these agreements are for drilling and mining operations, laying of pipelines, construction of power lines and the construction of roads. The agreements are for interests in land that, in the absence of an agreement, could be taken without the owner’s consent.

The online Land Agent Licensing course will review all relevant information in the reference manual for Alberta Land Agents which was developed by members of the Land Agent Advisory Committee. Through the course students will write instructor prepared land agent’s exams that will prepare them for the government land agent license exams.

Decision Making for Wetland Management

The newly implemented Alberta Wetland Policy is creating a rapid and critical need for land managers, land owners and land developers to have specific knowledge and skills about wetlands. Ill-informed decisions and actions can be costly and can create many risks. If you work in a position where your decisions and actions can affect wetlands, or if you have a role in water quality, flood, drought and biodiversity management, this course is for you.  As a participant in this workshop, you’ll learn the most up-to-date information about wetlands so that you can effectively and competently make well-informed decisions.
