Full member digital workshops
We are holding a series of interactive upgrade workshops throughout the end of 2020 for IEMA members looking to become Full and Chartered Environmentalist members (MIEMA CEnv).
These sessions offer the chance to explore the Full and CEnv membership competencies and understand the expectations and requirements for planning and writing the written application. It will also prepare attendees for their peer-review interview. Delivered by an experienced IEMA Full and Chartered Environmentalist assessor, attendees will gain the confidence needed to craft a high quality application.
To ensure that there is ample opportunity to dig into the process and standard, attendee numbers are limited to 10 per workshop. Sessions are interactive, and the assessor will encourage contributions, sharing of opinions and questions throughout. Before the workshops, attendees will be asked to identify which of the 13 Full member competencies they'd like the assessor to focus on, along with three short activities. This prep work means the assessor can adapt the content of each workshop to the specific requirements of attendees, providing a personalised session.
These sessions are worth two hours of IEMA recognised CPD for those whose goals are set on achieving Full membership and Chartered Environmentalist.
