He also has a Diploma in Sustainable Baltic Studies from Lublin University of Technology, Poland, and a Work Place Health and Safety Diploma from Advance Learning Interactive Systems Online, Galway, Ireland. He has language competence in English, German, French and Italian.
He decided to study Environmental Policy because of the conviction that, it is the preeminent platform for learning good policies and effective governance, which when combined with adequate political and social willingness, enhances better environmental performance. He chose Memorial University because; It offers the program in a very assuring interdisciplinary frame that guarantees comprehensiveness of knowledge gain, with a substantial exposure to the job market. Secondly, the congenial student-lecturer relationship is an overwhelmingly positive morale boost for the students, and lastly, the university offers an excellent learning atmosphere for international students, designed to ensure success.
In September 2015, Ernest went as an intern to Pennecon Ltd, working on an ISO 14001:2004 Project. He performed his duty with great sense of commitment and respect, and this earned him a job offer as Project Environmental Advisor for the Lower Churchill – Muskrat Falls Generation Project, the biggest project in Newfoundland and Labrador. He received his offer with gratitude and extends special thanks to the EPI, the Career Development Center, and International Student Services.
He would gladly recommend EPI to anybody seeking the best Environmental Policy Study Program.
