Environmental Management Diploma 

Course Overview

The demand for qualified environmental managers to advise, control and monitor pollution, noise and waste has increased dramatically in recent years. Many private and public sector organisations now understand the need to reduce their carbon footprint. Reducing wastage costs and at the same time eliminating potential damage to the environment has become a priority.

Successfully tendering for contracts requires effective Environmental management control systems. This is a niche area for jobs, so past graduates tend to do very well and get well paid positions with county/city councils, pharmaceutical, factory production, waste management and consultancy.

It is the Environmental Managers role to advise and monitor on environmental management systems, appropriate to various companies and organisations ranging from hotels, factories, waste treatment plants to restaurants, hospitals and chemical plants.
