NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management


The NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management is designed for individuals with responsibilities for the management of environmental risk in relation to the damage caused by work activities.  It will be invaluable for those aiming to develop and implement effective environmental management systems within their organisations. Holders of this diploma will be able to advise their organisation on the environmental impacts of their activities, on their legal obligations and on the means of continuously improving their environmental performance as part of an integrated management approach.

It is particularly suited to Health and Safety Practitioners who wish to extend their NEBOSH qualifications. However, a health and safety background, although recommended, is not a pre-requisite for the course, and delegates come from a variety of disciplines seeking detailed knowledge on environmental management techniques.
