Practitioner membership makes you part of this community. It recognises everything you’re doing to help make business future-proof while giving you the practical support you need. We can help you deliver on your sustainability goals, with information, best practice and tools to put you ahead on ideas and innovation. You can also get the training you need to increase your knowledge and skills in the field. You can expect to build your influence and connect with others like you across IEMA, as part of the Practitioner community.

Different people like to learn in different ways which is why we offer two routes to achieving Practitioner membership.
If you already have the appropriate environment and sustainability knowledge, then the direct study route allows you to register to complete the exam and written assessment with IEMA.
If, however you prefer a course that is delivered either in a classroom or through e-learning there is an approach to learning that works for you via an IEMA approved training partner.
Are you studying for or have you completed within the last 3 years the NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management? Then as soon as you pass or have your certificate, you’ll be automatically eligible to fast track for practitioner membership. Both of these routes mean you are exempt from taking the IEMA Practitioner exam and on completion of your written assessment you can add PIEMA to your CV.
Direct Study- Three knowledge based assignments and a written submission
If you already have experience in environment and sustainability role you can apply for Practitioner Membership directly with IEMA. This involves an online exam followed by a written assessment. Our Practitioner Assessors will review your assessment and once they are happy you meet the Practitioner Standard, you will be able to use the PIEMA suffix.
