The first year of the program provides students with the skill set necessary for data collection work in the field. Students will learn field skills such as tree and plant identification, navigation skills, mapping skills for use in the field and with geographic information systems, soil identification, resource measurements (e.g. distance, heights, slope, diameters and elevation) and ecology.
Since students will work within First Nations traditional territories, courses in Ethno science and Aboriginal case law are key to providing an understanding of the uniqueness and role that First Nation people have in land and resource management.
