Soils are a vital part of our planet’s functioning, but all too often we take soils for granted. They are a complex environment which supports the most fundamental environmental processes. However, they are increasingly under threat and our soil resource is a finite one. This level 6 Certificate course by UK Public College is designed to introduce participants to soils and explore the world beneath our feet. This course will provide participants with an in-depth understanding of soil biology in the context of agricultural production systems and other sectors of the economy. If you want to develop your knowledge of Soil Biology so that you can embark on a rewarding career or maybe you are already working in a related field and want to improve your career prospects, then this is the course for you.
This level 6 certificate course will provide a broad knowledge of the living constituent present in the soil including the group of organism present such as microorganisms, and macrofaunal. It will also discuss topics such as the characteristics, numbers and biomass, functional importance, and influence of the complex soil matrix. Participants will learn about how and why soils are under threat both at a local and global scale. This course will also emphasise on sustainable soil use and will prepare participants to handle today’s environmental issues, such as soil and water conservation, nutrient management, sustainable agriculture.
Students will be awarded the Certificate in Soil Biology Level 6. The Certificate is Internationally recognised and will open unlimited opportunities to the learners.
The course is accredited by The CPD Qualifications Group.
This course does not involve any written exams. students need to answer 4 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work. students can write the answers in their own time.
