Practical Life Cycle Assessment–Recorded Online Training

Interested in Learning Practical Life Cycle Assessment Online But
Don’t Have the Time During Your Busy Work Week?

We Have the Solution for You — Two Easy Training Options!  

Our Recorded Practical Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) Online Training Modules allow you the convenience of watching as you learn about life cycle analysis and assessment when you have the time. 

The curriculum will teach you how to:

  • Comfortably apply LCA in a practical project setting, such as product design decisions
  • Scope out life cycle assessment (LCA) projects
  • Develop practical LCA models for products and processes
  • Have a better understanding of how LCA can be used effectively to achieve sustainability goals
“I’m very pleased with my decision to use Earth Smart in my Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) course. The students are undergraduate students with a background in environment and business. Although Earth Smart seemed complicated at first, once they got into the program and entered the components for their project, built the life cycle and analyzed it, it was like magic to them- they were awed by what they could do with it and they found it fairly easy to use. They also really enjoyed seeing the results of a simple LCA for products they had chosen and were very pleased to have learned how to use new software. I highly recommend Earth Smart for introductory LCA courses-it is fairly intuitive to use.”
— Goretty Dias, Assistant Professor, University of Waterloo, Canada
