APNR 1090: Independent Research Project
Jan
28
to Feb 1

APNR 1090: Independent Research Project

Independent research on a land management issue in the student's community to which the range of skills acquired are applied. Such application will result in a methodology for addressing the issue; a series of land use, parcel, boundary and topographic plans; a written report setting out the findings and the implications; and two presentations – one to Chief and Council and one to the class.

This is the final course in the Certificate in First Nation Applied Land Management program.

APNR 1080: Land Use Planning II
Nov
5
to Nov 9

APNR 1080: Land Use Planning II

This course complements Land Use Planning I – Environmental assessment. Planning I focused on the bio-physical aspects of the Reserve land base (i.e. what is the natural environment); Planning II focuses on the socio-cultural aspects of the Reserve land base (i.e. who can do what where). Emphasis is placed on community aspirations and consultation; on linking human activities with appropriate land parcels; on the nexus between land use planning and socio-economic development; and on the benefits of coordinating planning with surrounding/abutting communities.

This is the seventh course in the Certificate in First Nation Applied Lands Management program.

Oct
15
to Oct 19

APNR 1030: Land Use Planning I

This course offers an introduction to assessing environmental systems on the land, and identifying potential effects of human activities and developments on environmental media (air, water, soil, groundwater, vegetation and wildlife habitat), with a focus on Indigenous communities. Emphasis will be placed on sensitivities and potential impacts on soils, surface water, groundwater, vegetation communities and wildlife habitats.

This is the sixth course in the Certificate in First Nation Applied Lands Management program.

APNR 1060: Data Capture II
Sep
17
to Sep 21

APNR 1060: Data Capture II

This course provides an introduction to data capture as it relates to legal and non-legal surveys (records, services & products) with an emphasis on Indigenous communities by building on the knowledge and skill acquired during the Data Capture I course.  Some emphasis will also be placed on more modern technologies like Global Satellite Navigation Systems (GNSS).

This is the fifth course in the Certificate in First Nation Applied Lands Management program.

APNR 1070: Digital Mapping II
Aug
13
to Aug 17

APNR 1070: Digital Mapping II

This course builds on GIS/Mapping I by expanding on spatial data use in a GIS, and culminates in building a custom community map of the students’ own community. Emphasis will be placed on attribute data, creating your own spatial data, aerial imagery, and geographic analysis using Indigenous examples. This course, like GIS/Mapping I, will be comprised of lectures and labs and an online discussion board. All topics will include practical exercises of the above mentioned subject areas.

This is the fourth course in the Certificate in First Nation Applied Lands Management program.

APNR 1020 Digital Mapping I
Jun
11
to Jun 15

APNR 1020 Digital Mapping I

This course offers an introduction to managing and processing geographic information in a digital world with a focus on Indigenous communities (i.e. Reserves). Emphasis will be placed on the nature of geographic information in a digital environment, types of spatial data, coordinate systems, datums, map projections, and performing basic functions in a Geographic Information System (GIS).

The course is comprised of lectures and labs and an online discussion board. Lectures will focus on the introductory elements of the above noted topics. Labs are designed so that students will gain first-hand experience in exploring spatial data and presentation in a GIS.  All labs will utilize Indigenous community spatial data. The on-line discussion board will focus on a weekly topic for students to participate in.

This course will be delivered in person at TRU.

This is the third course in the First Nation Applied Lands Management Certificate.

APNR 1010 Data Capture
May
14
to May 18

APNR 1010 Data Capture

During this course students are introduced to observational methods for data capture using surveying equipment. Data capture fundamentals remain regardless of the rapid technological advances in data capturing equipment, acquisition and processing procedures. Focus is therefore placed on basic data capture concepts, basic data capture measurements, field and office work, data capture instruments and modern data capture as they pertain to Indigenous communities on-Reserve.

This course will be delivered using in-classroom lectures at TRU, practical field work and an online component for distance learning. Lectures will teach data capture theory required to form a foundation of knowledge to later build upon. Practical field work will provide an opportunity to unlock and reinforce the theoretical knowledge gained. The online component will facilitate the distance learning component and foster collaboration.

This is the second course in the First Nation Applied Lands Management Certificate.

APPLIED LANDS MANAGEMENT: Land Tenure
Mar
26
to Mar 29

APPLIED LANDS MANAGEMENT: Land Tenure

Students will learn about regimes (e.g. Indian Act, FNLM Act, ILT Initiative, informal); enabling legislation (e.g. CLS Act, land codes, First Nation bylaws); establishing/re-establishing parcels; boundary evidence (physical, occupational, coordinates); and registering interests (Indian Lands Registry and other registries).

This is an on-campus class in Kamloops. 

This is the first course of the Certificate for First Nation Applied Lands Management program.
