University Credit courses

Take a Criminology course this spring!

Learn the principles of law enforcement and about the Canadian criminal justice system with our Criminology courses. Our robust Criminology department is led by CMTN Professor, Michael Brandt who teaches both Criminal Justice and Criminal Law in Canada courses this spring.

Michael Brandt has taught internationally in a variety of settings, including for Criminalpol, Interpol and the Direzione Investigativa Antimafia in Rome, Italy. In Canada, he has also taught at S.F.U. and Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

Regardless of the setting, Michael's aim has always been the same: to promote evidence-based criminal justice policy, inspire students to think critically about crime and criminal justice and promote social justice.

Michael obtained both his BA and MA in Criminology at the School of Criminology at Simon Fraser University (S.F.U.).

At Coast Mountain College, he has designed the Criminology Diploma Program as well as the Community, Crime and Social Justice Certificate.

What is Permaculture?

"An innovative framework for creating regenerative ways of living; a practical method for developing ecologically harmonious, ethical, human-scale and productive systems that can be used by anyone, anywhere."--Permaculture Magazine

In times like these we, at CMTN, think food security is a hot topic.

People everywhere are engaging in a local, land-based lifestyle and permaculture explores the practice and design of that land, recognizing uniqueness to every ecosystem.

Offered as part of our Associate Degree in Sustainable Communities, this is the first time we have offered Permaculture Design online. A 30 day course to help you build skills in cultivating and supporting land--perhaps for farms and food production.

Permaculture Design (SUST 120) June 1 - June 30

Taught by CMTN's College Professor, Ken ShawFor the past eight years Ken has specialized in developing further skills in the implementation of sustainable community design. He has two Permaculture Design Certificates, one from the University of Oregon and the second from Pacific Permaculture. He also received Permaculture teacher training from the Australian Permaculture Research Institute, Urban Permaculture Design certificate, and Edible Forest Design certificate from Dave Jacke.

Prior to teaching, Ken has worked as a crop consultant with Green Valley Fertilizer and with the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, ARDSA, Engineering, and 4-H Youth Development Branches.
