14001 course goes live
Just as members are contributing to IEMA's final round of consultation on the revisions to ISO 14001, a course has been launched to prepare practitioners to implement the new international benchmark for environment management systems (EMS), which is due for publication in 2015.
As previewed in the August issue of the environmentalist, IEMA Sustainability Training Solutions, part of the IEMA group, has worked with the Institute’s 80-plus global training partners to deliver the IEMA-certified course, called Making the transition to ISO 14001: 2015.
It will provide an overview of the new requirements and enable delegates to evaluate and implement changes to improve their organisation’s environmental performance, and each delegate will receive the unique iemaSTS gap analysis tool for EMS.
Delegates at this one-day course over seven hours will not only leave with an understanding of the proposed changes to 14001 and their intent but, crucially, they will also be able to identify and plan actions to enable their organisation to conform to, and benefit from, the new requirements.
If you want to be among the first to be ready for 14001: 2015, equipped and able to implement the new standard, this course will arm you with all the essential knowledge and the tools.
There are 13 course dates available, with plans to add more. To find out more about the course, partners and costs visit iemasts.com.
