  • About This Course

    The Environmental Aspects and Impacts course is intended to help you guide your organisation towards a strategy that will improve its overall environmental performance and comply with recent environmental legislation.

    This course takes you through the first steps in introducing an environmental management system into your organisation. In order to accomplish this, you will explore in detail both local and global environmental issues, and how your company can reduce its contribution to these problems.

    You will learn to identify those activities, products and services that can have an impact on the environment, evaluate the significance of those impacts, conduct an environmental review and to write a report of your findings.

The best boost for anyone

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules. Mostly it was my not reading the question properly, so that is why I made the mistake I did. Thank you for the chance to prove myself as a person in my own right. When people know you have a disabilit...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.

I did the fast track cou...
