IEMA shares an update on the current changes being made to the Chartered Environmentalist eligibility criteria
The revisions relate mainly to the eligibility criteria and competences that need amending due to new legislation on age discrimination.
The outcomes of the review will not impact on any members who are already qualified as a CEnv, except in being relevant for any continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
IEMA has been working with SocEnv to establish the date from which any CEnv applications will be subject to the new specification. SocEnv says this will be 1 March 2013; however, IEMA is likely to process applications under the new guidance from 1 January 2013.
IEMA will keep members informed on the review as it develops and will communicate the details of how existing CEnvs will be required to submit their CPD records to those concerned.
