NEBOSH qualifications to count for CIWEM membership

NEBOSH has announced that its environmental management qualifications are to be accepted by CIWEM (The Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management) for meeting its membership requirements.

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.

The NEBOSH Certificate in Environmental Management will be accepted for its new Technician Membership grade (TechCIWEM). The NEBOSH National Diploma in Environmental Management fulfils the qualification requirements for non-chartered Member of CIWEM, entitling the post-nominal designation (MCIWEM). Progression onto chartered membership is a further opportunity.

Paul Horton, CIWEM Membership and International Director, commented: “As an independent, chartered professional body with registered charity status, we require our members to demonstrate high levels of professional skill and judgement.

“NEBOSH qualifications are highly respected and we’re delighted that they now form part of our membership criteria.”

Teresa Budworth, NEBOSH Chief Executive, added: “The 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.”
