Nebosh National Diploma in Environmental Management

Course Overview: 

The NEBOSH National Diploma in Environmental Management is a useful qualification for those aiming to develop and implement effective environmental management systems within their organisations. The qualification focuses on the main elements of UK and EC legislation for environmental protection and general principles of the management of environmental and pollution control.
It also looks at the key components and structure of an environmental management system. It is designed for those whose careers focus strongly on environmental management at work.
Those who hold the NEBOSH Environmental Diploma are able to implement strategies and systems that help their employers demonstrate environmental excellence and social responsibility, as well as avoiding prosecution, litigation and loss of reputation.
Holders will have a set of high level skills that bring real value to the modern workplace.
Those who pass their Environmental Diploma are entitled to use designatory letters EnvDipNEBOSH.
Our qualifications are developed based on extensive research with health and safety professionals, employers, professional bodies and regulators to ensure that they remain relevant, rigorous as well as achievable and practical.
You will be assessed on your ability to apply your skills and knowledge to a wide range of issues and how to deliver positive change to a real workplace.

The Environmental Diploma is designed for aspiring environmental management professionals, building directly upon the foundation of knowledge provided by the NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management.
Health and Safety practitioners commonly have environmental managements as an additional responsibility. The National Environmental Diploma can equip the Health and Safety Practitioner with the knowledge and understanding required to fulfil this part of their role.
