How to apply
The River Studies & Leadership Certificate is awarded through River Management Society, not FLC. This certificate is something you'll mention on your résumé, and it will not appear on your FLC transcript as a credential. Because of this, to apply you must:
- Set up a meeting with FLC’s RSLC Advisor, Cynthia Dott, firstname.lastname@example.org
- Complete RMS's application form or fill the form out in your meeting
