Both courses are college level, Climate Change and Health being about 1/2 the length of Environmental Health.

Here’s a summary of Environmental Health:

This introductory course in Environmental Health is intended for undergraduate- and graduate-level students of medicine, environmental sciences or public health, and provides foundational theoretical and practical knowledge and skills. All components of this training (like all NextGenU.org trainings) are free, including registration, learning, testing, and a certificate of completion. This certificate is cosponsored by the International Society of Doctors for the Environment, Physicians for Social Responsibility and Simon Fraser University’s Faculty of Health Sciences. This course uses the competencies recommended by the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) and the Association of Schools of Public Health in the European Region (ASPHER), and resources from accredited, world-class organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Harvard Medical School, U.S. National Institutes of Health, and World Health Organization.
