The NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management is designed to be undertaken by those who are responsible for managing environment issues within their role; typically, managers and supervisors. The certificate can also be used as part of an ongoing career path along with IOSH membership. The NEBOSH website states that:
“[In Their] 2014 survey of successful NEBOSH Environmental Certificate students, over 97% of respondents would recommend the qualification to others.”
The course has been developed to meet the UK standards in terms of practical management of environmental risk, with the syllabus taking a risk management approach. This fits well with the HSE approach of assessing and controlling risks within the workplace.
While the course covers numerous environmental risks, key issues such as control of emissions to air, control of contamination of water resources and control of waste are all featured. Another key element of the course is the section covering the planning for and dealing with environmental emergencies. This gives the trainees a great insight on how to competently handle the situation if an environmental accident should occur in the workplace.
The SOA Safety course is run over one week with five tutor lead sessions and approximately 33 hours of private study and background reading. As a NEBOSH certified training facility, we ensure all our training is presented in a clear and understandable manner, which is supported by our high pass rate.
