A practical guide for achieving chartered environmentalist status

Rupert Evans / Kindle edition (file size: 350KB) / £4.14 / ASIN: B006913KVA

There are many ways to become a chartered environmentalist (CEnv) via an array of “environmental” institutions, including IEMA, that are licensed to award CEnv status by the Society for the Environment. This is a guide through the application process provided by the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM).

The ebook is a very easy read and it is a cross between a manual and a self-help guide. At the same time the author’s enthusiasm for the environmental profession shines through.

For those with no colleagues who have gone through the CEnv process to help them, this is an ideal overview to accompany the application guides the respective institutes and institutions provide. I reviewed this publication on a Kindle and while the book was presented well, the small text on the diagrams and some of the tables were virtually unreadable.

This is not a criticism of the author but of the way diagrams are loaded as pictures and then cannot be made bigger, as they might be able to be on other e-reading devices such as in an ipad. Evans has identified this issue and does reference them so that a reader can overcome the problem by accessing various websites.

In conclusion: this is excellent, essential reading for the would-be CEnv – via any application route.
