Career progression in 2011
If your New Year's Resolution was to get your career on track then start 2011 on the right note with one of IEMA's high-quality continuing professional development (CPD) workshops.
CPD is an essential way to keep up to date with the latest issues and developments in the environmental arena, giving you a competitive advantage over other practitioners and enhancing your confidence and competence.
IEMA’s range of CPD workshops are a great way of keeping abreast of best practice, fast-moving legislation changes and new procedures in a positive and inclusive environment.
Each workshop has been tailor-made to provide practical and fresh insights into diff erent areas of environmental management and assessment, which are vital in improving the environmental performance of both individuals and organisations.
The dates of IEMA CPD workshops for the first quarter of 2011 are now available and are listed in the events table (below).
Spaces on the workshops are limited so do not delay in booking your place, taking advantage of your member discount and making headway on your professional development.
To book your place, and for details of each of the workshops, including key topics, learning outcomes and workshop fees visit www.lexisurl.com/iema5934.
The training tables that you used to find in this section of the environmentalist in its previous format can now be found online.
Because of the many courses we approve, these tables – filled with all current and future training courses from IEMA’s approved providers – are updated regularly and are therefore more at home on our website where members and visitors can see the full up-to-date lists of relevant, high-quality environmental training options.
If you are planning to develop your knowledge and skills this year, perhaps on your route towards Associate or Full membership, then see what courses are open to you.
