CEQA professionals must have a strong understanding of CEQA, as well as the ability to critically assess information during the environmental review process. Students will work through a project, building upon the understanding and knowledge of the CEQA process acquired in the CEQA I course and will leave this course with a solid understanding of CEQA so that they are prepared to move to more advanced work.
Key topics include:
