IEMA Question

Post by heller792 » Mon May 05, 2014 7:00 am

Quick question, I want to do an environment qualification but do I go with the NEBOSH cert or IEMA? If I pick IEMA do i have to do the introduction, foundation and associate or can i miss the introduction one? I would really appreciate any advice on this one guys as after my construction cert exam in June I would like to get straight on this.

There are no pre-requisites for IEMA - you just have to pass the entrance exam if you haven't done the approved training.

I am currently studying NEBOSH Env Cert, then I will take the IEMA Associate exam. I really hope they are properly compatible...

This link gives you a lot of info and also links to places you can do the approved training. Good luck.

You can go straight on the associate course if you have a little environmental knowledge.

I did the course distance learning and thought it was not in depth enough to be of any use to me it was mostly stuff I already knew but had no 'competency certificate' to go with it, hence me not doing the exams, well that and me being ill disciplined and not applying myself to do the 2nd essay ;)
