Associate- How do I achieve it?

We have several routes for you to gain the new Associate membership:

IEMA Certified Course:

Take our online exam in your own time, or an IEMA accredited course. 

We can prepare you with everything you need to know with our Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management. This course provides a great way for you to get a foothold and demonstrate your competence in this kind of work. Delivered either in a classroom or through e-learning there is an approach to learning that works for you. CLICK HERE to find out more about the course and how you can book.

If you have completed the IEMA Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management or a NEBOSH Environmental Qualification within the last 3 years you are automatically eligible for Associate membership.
