IEMA's stable of approved training courses and providers continues to expand after making two more recent approvals
Pivotal Scotland, a health and safety and environment training and consultancy organisation based in Glasgow, is now an approved provider of the Associate certificate in environment management. Pivotal is running this course three times before the end of the year in Aberdeen and Glasgow – pivotalscotland.co.uk.
GBC Inspections (part of the Wales Green Business Centre) now has approval to deliver IEMA’s lead environmental auditor course. GBC is a provider of environment and quality auditing, consultancy and training services to businesses and public organisations across the UK, and delivers the three-day lead auditor course as standard. However, GBC also offers a two-day course, which features a reduced focus on compliance with environment legislation – walesgreenbusinesscentre.co.uk.
Members looking for high-quality, independently approved training to advance their knowledge and skills should look for the IEMA stamp of approval and visit iema.net/iema-training-courses to find full details.
