Five Reasons to do an NEBOSH Environmental Certificate Course
There are five key reasons that a NEBOSH environmental
course could work for you.
The first reason is that dependent on the course provider, the NEBOSH environmental can take as little as 5 -7 days to complete, including the exam. This is a very short time in which to gain an internationally well respected qualification, which could improve both your current work role and increase you chance of being appointed in a new role.
The second reason for completing a NEBOSH environmental
certificate is that this qualification is recognised by IEMA (Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment). IEMA allow candidates that have successfully completed the NEBOSH environmental certificate to apply for IEMA affiliate status. So, not only will you have a well recognised course but also membership of a separate and well regarded professional body. In addition, candidates that choose to go on to develop their skills even further can complete a NEBOSH environmental diploma. This allows them to apply for IEMA associate membership. Successful candidates can then use the letters AIEMA (Associate – of IEMA) after their name.
The third reason to complete NEBOSH environmental
certificate is that it provides both the necessary theoretical knowledge necessary to safe guard the environment and the opportunity to apply this knowledge to practical real life situations. As the old saying goes ‘an ounce of practice is worth a tonne of theory’ and candidates will benefit from a chance to consolidate their knowledge in situations that they will encounter in their day to day role. The practical module is known as NCEM2 and is assessed by a written report that is to be completed and submitted no more than 14 days before or after the theory module and exam, (known as NCEM1). The NCEM1 exam is 2 hours in length, and as with most of the NEBOSH exams, it is made up of short and long answer questions. For the NEBOSH environmental, candidates will be expected to answer 10 shorter answer questions and 1 long answer question.
The forth reason to do the NEBOSH environmental
course is that is covers a wide range of areas related to environmental management across all sectors. The theoretical part of the course is designed to bring candidates up to speed on UK environment law and prepared them to manage environmental risk effectively. The course covers the following areas in detail: noise control, how to prevent and deal with the impact of environmental emergencies, energy and energy efficiency, use of land, waste control, air emissions, assessing the impact on the environment, the foundations of environmental management and environmental management systems.
