Skills & CPD

Sustainability and environmental professionals operate in careers and roles that demand highly developed skills, knowledge and behaviours. Together we can refer to these abilities as competencies. IEMA supports the development and recognition of competencies through education and training on the one hand, and through professional membership and registers on the other. IEMA’s training, guidance, webinars, events and online materials provide a wealth of ongoing continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities for members to advance and maintain their competencies. The IEMA membership levels, along with the requirements for Chartered Environmentalists, and Auditor and EIA Practitioner Registers are all aligned to, and benchmarked against, defined competency requirements. The achievement of these various professional memberships and registrations demonstrates that an individual has independently been verified as achieving a high professional standard.
