Why Study Environmental Management?

Environmental issues concern each and every one of us.  Nevertheless, most simply assume that environmental management is someone else’s responsibility.  Ultimately, it comes down to qualified and capable environmental managers to lead by example.  Researching renewable fuel sources, helping businesses fulfil their environmental obligations, working to reduce pollution levels in towns and cities – just a few responsibilities shouldered by those who work in environmental management.  As the threat posed by environmental issues grows like never before, there’s never been a better time to consider a career in environmental management.


Course Syllabus

This exclusive Level 5 Environmental Management Diploma is our most advanced distance learning program to date.  Course content is delivered over 10 insightful modules as follows:

Environmental Management: An Introduction

The course begins with an introduction to the field of environmental management, along with the roles and responsibilities of those who work in the field.  Additional subtopics introduced include the components of the modern ecosystem, the man-made environment, the food web and the food chain.

Global Environmental Problems

A series of pressing environmental issues are explored in module two, along with their respective causes and possible solutions.  Candidates explore the effects of climate change, how global warming can be slowed or even reversed, the escalating threat to biodiversity worldwide and more.

Environmental Planning Strategies

The concept of sustainability is discussed in module three, alongside environmental evolution.  Several important sustainable development principles and related strategies are discussed, along with the criticality of forward planning.

Environmental Management System: Key Features

Module four turns attention to a series of effective environmental management systems and their respective applications.  Additional concepts discussed include ISO standards, energy efficiency, environmental audit processes, environmental accounting, impact assessments, environmental trade shifts and the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) approach.

Environmental Law - Principles of Environmental Law

An introductory overview of essential environmental law and legislation follows in module five.  Candidates study the role of law in the control and reduction of pollution, along with waste management and disposal legislation, water management and more.

How to Develop an Environmental Policy

The importance of developing a workable environmental policy is explored in module six, which includes a detailed breakdown of the effective environmental policy and its contributory components.

Enhancing Environmental Performance

Module seven brings forward planning and proactive environmental preservation into discussion once again.  Candidates learn how the key to successful environmental management lies in striving for continuous improvement.

Implementing Environmental Policy

The implementation of an environmental policy is discussed in module eight, along with how environmental managers establish objectives, monitor performance and share information with both contributors and stakeholders.
