Gaining more knowledge and be able to bring that information to my community is exciting. This course has inspired me.

As someone that does not have a background in the construction industry this was a great introductory course. Now as I drive around the city and see endless construction, I can see the product going into it and the waste coming from it. The emphasis on what products can be recycled/reused easily and what cannot was very interesting and I look forward to carrying this information forward in personal and professional life.

The Construction Waste course not only educates learners on a critical environmental issue but also equips them with practical strategies for minimizing waste in construction projects. It's a valuable resource for anyone involved in the construction sector and aligns perfectly with Ecodemy's commitment to sustainability education.

Even though I'm not a professional in the field, I thoroughly enjoyed the content and especially the mention of innovations around the industry. It prompted me to seek whether we have similar services and products locally. Will be able to apply several waste management tips for my future home renovation projects!
