Environmental Manager Support Course

Are you a new environmental manager? Have you just been given responsibility for your company's management system? Don't worry! Cedrec has the course that's perfect for you.

We'll take you through the key elements of ISO 14001, all the legislation you need to worry about, and how organisations can use ISO 14001 to manage their environmental impacts and deliver environmental improvement and sustainability. We'll also review the main changes in the new standard, and what your system needs to do to be ready to transition to ISO14001:2015.

Aim of the course

Our course will help you to understand the:

  • environment and what it means, the impacts on it, environmental sustainability concerns and how and why a management system is used to control your business impacts;
  • main environmental legislation relevant to your business and your management system;
  • principles of environmental management and the role of an environmental manager;
  • key ISO 14001 clause requirements;
  • role of an internal and external environmental audit and how it relates to your management system;
  • Requirements of ISO 14001:2015 and what you need to consider in order prepare to transition.

Who should attend the course?
