New list of training providers
Two new organisations have joined IEMA's approved training provider scheme
The National Union of Students has been approved to deliver courses on auditing environmental management systems and evaluating environmental behaviour change. Both courses are aimed at supporting the continuing professional development (CPD) of its staff across the UK as well as students.
At the same time, the following three existing approved training providers have gained additional approval, extending the range of courses they offer:
- Astutis will also now offer the foundation certificate in environmental management.
- Staffordshire University will now include the IEMA Associate certificate in environmental management as part of its degree in sustainability and environmental management.
- GBC Inspections has been approved to deliver its sustainable procurement CPD course.
Members seeking high-quality, independently-approved training to advance their knowledge and skills should always look for the IEMA stamp of approval.
The June issue of the environmentalist will contain a full list of available IEMA-approved training courses.
