Nebosh Environmental Diploma

New syllabus and course launched for 2018

In 2017 the brand new Nebosh Environmental Diploma was launched, there has been an extensive consultation between Nebosh and organisations, individuals along with both national and international stakeholders to determine the content and format of its new environmental qualification. This will be a qualification for both UK employers and those companies who operate overseas.

This is one of the few professional courses available in environmental management, it is aimed primarily at safety practitioners who either have responsibility for environmental management or those whose role interlinks with that of the environmental manager.

Holders of this qualification may use the designatory letters EnvDipNEBOSH after their name. IOSH CPD participants may allocate CPD credits for attendance at this course.

Those holding the Nebosh National Diploma in Environmental Management can apply to be a non-chartered Member of CIWEM (MCIWEM) once they have achieved their qualification.

The Environmental Diploma provides a sound basis for progression to MSc level: A number of UK universities offer MSc programs that accept the NEBOSH Diploma in Environmental Management as a full or partial entry requirement.

The Assessment is via one 3 hour examination where delegates have a choice of 5 from 8 questions, and a work based project which is based on the production of an environmental audit.
