NEBOSH Environmental Diploma
The NEBOSH Environmental Diploma, or NEBOSH National Diploma in Environmental Management to give it its full title, is intended for safety professionals and managers who are taking on environmental responsibilities. It is designed for individuals with responsibilities for the management of environmental risk in relation to the damage caused by work activities. The qualification will be invaluable for those aiming to develop and implement effective environmental management systems within their organisations.
Holders of the NEBOSH Environmental Diploma will be able to advise their organisation on the environmental impacts of their activities, on their legal obligations and the means of continuously improving their environmental performance as part of an integrated management approach.
You can become a Practitioner Member of IEMA (PIEMA) if you have completed the NEBOSH National Diploma in Environmental Management within the last 3 years. You can use your qualification to fast track an application to Practitioner Membership as you are exempt from the exam, although you will still need to submit an assessment of competence to successfully achieve PIEMA status.
