Course description

ISO 14001:2015 Foundation

This Environmental Management - ISO 14001 Foundation course has been designed to provide course Participants with a thorough knowledge of environmental management systems and implementation requirements for ISO 14001:2015.

This course helps course Participants in identifying the requirements for implementing ISO 14001 compliant EMS in their respective organisations, paving the way for informed decision-making. For course Participants whom feel that ISO 14001 will be beneficial to their organisations, the programme offers a broad examination of the requisites and possible pitfalls to avoid that will help an organisation’s manager evade costly mistakes during implementation.

Participants will leave the course with a better understanding of how a systematic approach to environmental management can make good commercial sense, meeting the needs of customers who use environmental performance as key selection criteria when awarding contracts. A range of interactive exercises and sessions will facilitate understanding, as well as the development of practical skills.

This course will equip Participants with an understanding of the development and application of environmental management techniques and how the ISO 14001:2015 standard is interpreted and implemented.

On completion of the course we expect Participants to be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of an environmental management system
  • Explain the purpose, content and interrelationships of ISO 14001, ISO 14004, and EMAS
  • Interpret the specific requirements of ISO 14001 in the context of an effectively implemented environmental management system
