The over-use of natural resources within Defence has increased considerably over time, and it is inevitable that future growth and essential operational requirements will add to the existing pressures of the global system.


This course will be delivered either online or face-to-face depending on which dates you choose. The course aims and content remain comparable between the two courses, though there are some key differences you may like to take into account when deciding which version to attend.

The online course includes the same content, but has less emphasis on discussion and group work and therefore places more emphasis on independent study. This means there are fewer networking and opportunities for discussion during the online course, although sessions are set aside specifically for this purpose.

When attending the course online facilitators can only control the internet speeds and digital provision for outgoing video and content. It is recommended that you have a consistent internet connection and are comfortable with using an internet enabled device when taking the online course.
