NEBOSH and CIWEM announce new partnership
01 February 2013
NEBOSH environmental management qualifications are now being accepted by CIWEM (The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management) as meeting its membership requirements. The partnership was announced in January at a reception in Dubai by NEBOSH Chief Executive Teresa Budworth and CIWEM President Paul Hillman.
The NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management will be accepted for its new Technician Membership grade entitling the use of post-nominal designation (TechCIWEM). The NEBOSH National Diploma in Environmental Management fulfils the qualification requirements for non-chartered Member of CIWEM (MCIWEM). Progression on to chartered membership is a further opportunity.
NEBOSH’s Teresa Budworth said: “CIWEM has a longstanding history of working in environmental management which dates back more than 100 years. We’re extremely proud that our environmental qualifications have been recognised by the CIWEM as a sign of knowledge and professionalism in this field.”
Speaking in Dubai, CIWEM President Paul Hillman added: “I hope that those who successfully complete these qualifications use this CIWEM recognition to expand their professional careers with membership of the Institution. There is a warm welcome awaiting them within CIWEM and support for their onward professional development.”
CIWEM’s members are employed throughout the environment sector in senior management, engineering and scientific positions within the public and private sectors. It supports thousands of members worldwide through information, training and professional development opportunities.
NEBOSH also officially launched its revised Certificate in Environmental Management at the evening reception in Dubai. The syllabus is now more flexible to suit the location in which the exam is taken, responding to international interest in the qualification.
