Environmental Improvements

Overview

About the Level 4 Environmental Improvements Certificate

Nowadays, it is more important than ever that we all consider our effect upon the environment. Especially those of us in charge of businesses and organisations. If you want to lessen the environmental impact of your organisation, this could be the course for you. The Level 4 Environmental Improvements Certificate has been especially designed to help you plan and fulfil your organisation's environmental policy.

The distance learning course itself is made up of a number of separate modules. The online qualification begins by outlining your environmental objects and targets. It then moves on to explain how to develop your environmental management programme. After that, the subsequent online modules go on to examine the role of the individual and discuss how to monitor and sustain your policy.

Who should study this course?

This home learning course has been tailored towards business owners or managers who want to expand their environmental knowledge. The course is also useful for individuals who are planning to start their own business, or those with an interest in environmental strategy.

As with all our courses here at learndirect, there are no minimum entry requirements. All we ask is that you are willing to learn and that you are capable of setting time aside for home study. It is worth noting that you will also need access to a computer and the internet.

What happens after the course?

On completion of this course, you should feel confident designing and implementing your company's environmental strategy. You will have a good knowledge of environmental issues and will be able to successfully identify sustainable methods and practices.

If you enjoyed studying this course, you may choose to undertake another distance learning course with learndirect. We offer several other environment related courses such as environment management and environment waste management.

After graduating from this course, many students will go on to develop environmental strategies for their own businesses. This qualification may also help you to secure employment. Jobs related to the environment include:

  • Environmental Consultant
