This is a full day course, jointly awarded with Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS) and Albion Environmental.

 It has been designed to provide a basic understanding of the legislation relating to the Waste and Resource Management industry and provide the necessary level of knowledge for anyone dealing with waste on a day to day basis.
 

"The course was engaging and informative. It’s a useful session for anyone new to waste management as well as a good refresher for those who have been involved with waste for longer. The day’s pace is suitable for all backgrounds and prior knowledge, and the trainer keeps the audience engaged throughout."
 
"Level of course was suitable for novices in waste but also useful for those already working in the industry as a good refresher course.
