Our Alumni

The Institute offers technical and rigorous curricula that aims to provide learners with the practical aptitude and knowledge necessary to fulfill their carbon management goals. As such, concerted diligence to the course material prior to passing the proficiency examinations is crucial to earning a Certificate or Diploma. Alumni that have earned a Certificate of Proficiency or a Diploma have demonstrated an enthusiastic and staunch commitment to addressing climate change and are considered experts in their field of study or profession.

Our learners represent diverse backgrounds and come from almost every country in the world. Whether you simply want to understand how carbon markets work or you want to become a leading expert on greenhouse gas verification, carbon management, or how to be a climate change officer, we have a training program to fit your needs.

Individuals from the following backgrounds and types of organizations are trained and credentialed by the Institute:

Alumni Registry

Having launched our first training program in 2008 (learn more about our history here), the Institute’s professional network of alumni has been growing for over a decade. At the end of 2008, we prepared 161 individuals for carbon management– and just two years later, our alumni increased by 365%!

Now, we have almost 7,000 alumni worldwide.

Beginning in 2018, the GHGMI Alumni Registry has been compiled annually and contains alumni who have earned a Certificate of Proficiency or a Diploma within the reporting year from our online education program. Alumni who appear in these registries have provided their consent to be included. Don’t see your name listed? To add yourself to the registry or to learn more, contact: [email protected]
