Our Alumni

The Institute offers technical, rigorous curricula that provides learners with the practical aptitude and knowledge needed to achieve their carbon management goals. Concerted diligence to 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.

Our learners represent diverse backgrounds and come from almost every country in the world. Whether you want to understand how carbon markets work, want to become a leading expert on greenhouse gas verification and carbon management, or learn 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

Since we launched our first training program in 2008 (learn more about our history here), our professional network of alumni has been growing for over 15 years. At the end of 2008, we prepared 161 individuals for carbon management; just two years later, our alumni increased by 365%!

Now, we have over 10,000 alumni worldwide.

Beginning in 2018, we have annually compiled the GHGMI Alumni Registry. The Registry is a record of GHGMI 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]
