The course supports individuals who wish to become an environmental professional, and gain professional membership of IEMA. Practitioner membership (PIEMA) is the benchmark for environment and sustainability professionals with sleeves rolled up; membership for the working experts who are driving change.It’s for Professionals who are working across organisations at an operational level, and pursuing a career path in environment and sustainability. You’re likely to be delivering and improving sustainability in organisations, projects, products and services, working within defined policy or regulatory contexts, and supporting the development of the overall body of environment and sustainability knowledge
This unique course is designed to offer learners a one stop route to PIEMA and beyond. The course is based on an applied learning model.Via an evidence based portfolio you are required to demonstrate not only your understanding of all the PIEMA membership criteria, but an ability to apply your skills in a work-based setting. The applied learning approach focuses on the application of the core environmental knowledge to your own organisation and is designed to appeal to those with a practical learning style, based on the concept of ‘learning by doing’. Applied learning ensures you understand the relevance of a topic to a real world situation, helping you to comprehend and retain the information. It also allows you to work at your own pace, around work commitments, whilst still achieving a high level qualification – the IEMA Certificate in Environmental Management.It avoids the need for any examinations, but it does require effort and determination.
It incorporates the competency assessment to IEMA Practitioner membership, meaning you don’t have to submit an additional competency claim to IEMA, and on successful completion of the full course, and payment of appropriate fees, learners can use the suffix PIEMA.
