BROADEN YOUR ENVIRONMENTAL QUALIFICATIONS AND BOOST YOUR CAREER!
A specialist qualification, designed to provide additional training in areas of environmental management where the student has not previously been involved.
A proficiency award is a specialist qualification, for people who already have a “foundation” knowledge of a subject; but who wish to undertake limited specialist study in that field. This award allows you to attain a formal qualification without needing to make as much of a commitment as a full certificate.
Requires: 3 modules (combined nominal duration of at least 300 hours).
Plus 200 hours of work experience or industry meetings.
Prerequisites: A reputable certificate or higher qualification; or significant industry experience which demonstrates a foundation knowledge in the subject; or over 21 years of age; or equivalent (contact school for more information).
This qualification is not accredited through the International Accreditation and Recognition Council, though it’s modules can be used as credits toward higher, accredited qualifications
This allows you to broaden your attraction to employers; or to strengthen your capacity to perform in work which you are already involved with.
You want to select subjects that complement your career and that you have not studied before. When (or before) you enrol, our academic department will discuss your options and help you choose the best combination for you to successfully attain your goals.
This is sometimes satisfied by a letter of reference from an employer or professional colleague. Alternatively, you may satisfy it through a research project or providing proof of attendance at industry meetings such as conferences and trade shows.
