Full or Full with Chartered Environmentalist?

If you are working in a role which is largely focused on Environmental Management or similar, the dual accreditation of Full with Chartered Environmentalist (MIEMA CEnv) may be the best route for you.

If you work in a social or economic oriented role, you could explore your option of gaining *CEnv status to decide whether it’s right for you (the assessment process is the same for either option). If you feel it’s an accreditation you don’t need then you are free to go ahead and apply for Full membership on its own.
