TULSA, Okla., July 13, 2015 /3BL Media/ - Caelus Sustainability Consulting (Caelus) announced today they are now offering the professional 'GHG Inventory Quantifier Certification Preparation Course' online.  Since its launch, the course and certification has provided a globally recognized credential validating the ability of a sustainability professional’s ability to measure and report GHG Emissions based on ISO standards.  The course is delivered by their Toronto-based training partner, HRCarbon

With the demand for GHG professionals expected to increase rapidly over the next five years, organizations will be faced with the challenge of identifying and hiring qualified GHG quantifiers.

The intensive learning course also prepares the participant for the Greenhouse Gas Inventory Quantifier (GHG-IQ) certification offered by the CSA. The GHG-IQ certification is the first certification in North America to assess professionals in the field of GHG inventory development and calculation, and is designed for international applicability.
