British Safety Council tops the class for IEMA environmental qualifications
The British Safety Council, (which despite its name provides training and certification to anyone, anywhere in the world) has achieved the highest pass rate among UK and international providers of the Institute of Environmental Management & Assessment's Associate Certificate in Environmental Management.
New figures issued by the IEMA, show that in the first nine months of 2013, 82% of British Safety Council candidates studying for the IEMA Associate Certificate achieved a pass.
"We are delighted to have achieved the highest pass rate for the IEMA Associate Certificate, which provides delegates with the knowledge, understanding and skills to improve their organisation's environmental and sustainability performance," enthuses John Phillips, director of products & services at the British Safety Council.
"Our expert environmental tutors are hugely experienced, having worked with every size of company, both in the UK and abroad, and are able to provide detailed support both in the classroom and afterwards by email and telephone. This, coupled with our comfortable, well equipped classrooms, high quality course notes and online resources for those studying via e-learning, make it as easy as possible for people to learn and be assessed in ways that work for them.
"The Associate Certificate is widely recognised by employers as the must have qualification for any individual working with environmental responsibility. It is vital for the economy that environment and sustainability professionals are able to drive real business value through sound strategic environmental performance. The Associate Certificate equips learners with a deep understanding of technical issues along with an understanding of how to improve environmental performance across the entire value chain. More people being successful in taking the Associate Certificate will mean the UK economy is more productive, more competitive and more resilient in the long-term."
Peter M. Fedorow, quality & environment manager at ZF Services UK, says of the British Safety Council course: "The course helped me to expand and improve my knowledge and understanding of environmental matters to allow me to develop the environmental management systems at ZF Services UK to a higher level, all under the banner of continuous improvement.
"At the same time we can now engage with our employees on a wider basis to make them more aware of their environmental impact during their day to day work; we're looking to reduce waste, landfill, and energy consumption and costs by altering our behaviours and improving our processes."
The British Safety Council's IEMA Associate Certificate course is available as a public or 'in-company' training course or via e-learning. An international version is also available. Face-to-face classroom training is available in Birmingham, Manchester and London. The e-learning course includes interactive study modules, PDF texts, mind maps, practice questions, discussion forums and a virtual practice examination.
