How our first NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate course went

We ran our first NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate to the new syllabus this March. The NEBOSH environmental course begins with a general introduction into environmental management and sustainability, highlighting the importance of environmental performance improvement for businesses. We then looked at management systems and the various benefits such as managing risks, cost savings, improving reputation, reducing environmental impacts and understanding issues to support decision making.

Over subsequent days we covered the main environmental impacts, air pollution, contamination of water, waste generation, energy consumption, noise nuisance and managing environmental emergencies.

There were lots of activities for learners to apply their newly gained knowledge and skills and there were lots of lively conversations and contributions of examples of learner experiences which really added to the enjoyment of the course. The learners took part in a practical workplace inspection and got to use their creative sides to repurpose a difficult to recycle waste. They also had an assignment to do a small presentation to the group, to which one learner made a fantastic song about solar power which was unexpected good fun.

The learners had the opportunity to undergo a mock exam in preparation for the exam and had tutor support with exam technique. As part of the final assessment the learners also had to complete an environmental impact assessment which is an integral part of environmental management which I think they all appreciated gaining experience of.

The elements the learners enjoyed the most about the course were:

“Classroom tasks – chance to talk and share learning and experiences to make the learning relevant”

“learning something new, never been really environmentally-focused but the information and knowledge gained during the course makes you think about the things you yourself can do to play a part”

“Learning new information”

Aimee was a really knowledgeable tutor, the classroom lessons meant there were lots of interactive learning tasks and you were able to ask lots of questions. Practice exam questions were marked quickly with really good feedback and other learning materials were provided with regular communications to ensure I felt  prepared for the exam”

We now eagerly await the results of our learners hard work!
