The first dates for IEMA's new course from combining a formal qualification with Associate (AIEMA) membership have been confirmed.

The IEMA Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management has been developed to provide learners with a firm basis of environment and sustainability knowledge, on which they can build as their career progresses. It has been mapped to match the new Associate membership standard, and successful completion of the course results in AIEMA status.

The course has international relevance and can be tailored by providers to suit an organisation’s training needs. It covers:

  • The implications of global trends for the environment, society, the economy and organisations.
  • Sustainable business and governance principles and their relationship with organisations, products and services.
  • Environmental principles and their relationship with organisations, products and services.
  • The role of innovation and other leading practices in developing sustainable products and services and providing sustainable solutions.
  • Major environmental policies and legislation, and their implications for organisations, products and services.
  • Tools, techniques, systems and practices used to improve sustainability performance.
  • Collection of data, performing analysis and evaluating information.
  • Research into, and planning for, sustainable solutions.
  • Delivering effective communication and capturing feedback.
  • Engaging with stakeholders.
  • Outline tools and techniques that identify opportunities and risks.
  • Identifying and proposing ways to improve performance.
  • Supporting change and transformation to improve the sustainability or an organisation.

Approved training partners EEF and Mabbett are now running the new course (see below), and several other providers will roll out their course dates in the months ahead. Go to training.iema.net to find out more about the course and book your place.
