Petroskills Registerbutton

Our program starts in advance of the taught course, as participants undertake a review of their own site's environmental performance using documentation supplied to them. This sets the context for this intensive five-day class, which comprises a blended learning approach with tutorials, workshops, problem-solving and practical activities. At the end of the course, there is an examination and project; successful completion of which gives participants a formal qualification - the National Environmental Management Certificate awarded by NEBOSH. The course fee includes the cost of the exam. [N.b. No refund is available for participants who wish to opt-out of the NEBOSH exam.]

Staff in oil, gas and petrochemicals industries who require the basics of environmental management and pollution control, including operational staff, engineers, supervisors, project managers and entry level HSE professionals. It is a core course for any person who can influence environmental impact within their organisation; it is also an ideal program for anyone new to the industry with no prior environmental knowledge. The NEBOSH Environmental Management Certificate is a first step on a career ladder towards a role within the environmental disciplines and is awarded to those who pass the exam and practical exercise.
