NEBOSH Environmental Certificate Now Offered Internationally
NEBOSH has made changes to its popular National Certificate in Environmental Management to suit its growing international audience.
The revised qualification, which builds on the success of the original qualification launched in 2009, will be showcased at the Intersec Safety and Security event in Dubai in January, and will be known as the NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management.
“Environmental management is a global issue and it is important that our qualifications are suitable for a worldwide audience,” said NEBOSH Chief Executive, Teresa Budworth.
NEBOSH’s reputation has grown significantly outside of the United Kingdom in recent years. More than half of all registrations to take NEBOSH examinations now come from outside of the UK.
“NEBOSH research has shown that around two-thirds of health and safety management positions feature responsibility for environmental management. So, combining a NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management with other NEBOSH qualifications can help with career progression. The qualification can also be a useful stepping stone towards gaining our professional level Environmental Diploma,” said Teresa Budworth.
The syllabus for the new NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management is flexible to suit the location in which the qualification is studied, allowing the inclusion of local legislation and guidance. The certificate is accepted by CIWEM – The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management – to meet the requirements for Technician Membership (TechCIWEM).
Courses leading to NEBOSH qualifications are offered by around 500 course providers in more than 100 countries around the world. Further information about NEBOSH courses can be found at www.nebosh.org.uk/Qualifications.
