The content of this course is indeed large and diverse, although the classes lack a bit in depth, the approach is too simple and does not provide much of a more practical and for everyday/workplace use. It could have more case studies related to everyday practices other than large companies/governmental idea. Feels this will not be much of use for my career than a general overview on waste. Ideas for improvement: try the case studies of small business, household potential ideas, how to improve your workplace, how to avoid certain materials and how works the chain of this products during take-make-use-dispose phases and also in circular economy.

It would have been so beneficial to an aspiring professional to have a certificate provided. But the course has helped me learn all about the waste management practices.

Interesting content. However, the delivery is rather dry. At the times the videos are very lengthy too. Not very interactive course.
