The NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management, or NEBOSH Environmental Certificate for short, covers the practical issues of managing environmental risk and environmental health and safety.

The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate syllabus takes a risk management approach based on the best practice and international industry standards, including:

  • Environmental management systems and environmental impact assessments

  • Sources and use of energy and energy efficiency

  • Control of pollution

  • Planning for and dealing with environmental emergencies.

  • Who Should Attend?

    Managers, supervisors and employees based in the UK, who have responsibility for managing environmental issues, as part of their day to day duties. This environmental qualification focuses on UK law and environmental management systems. It also provides a sound basis for progression on to the NEBOSH Environmental Diploma.

    No previous environmental management knowledge is required but candidates should note the assessment includes a written exam and the requirement to write a short report. An element of self study is also involved in this qualification.

    Course Material

    Each delegate will be issued with a course workbook and official Environmental Certificate Study Book to assist them both during and after the course which will contain information, guidance and forms to assist managers. The course is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates the opportunity to develop their skills with the support of the course tutor.

    Course Tutor

    NEBOSH courses and qualifications including the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate from ATC Risk Management

    Our environmental course tutors are qualified and experienced health and safety consultants with a background in health and safety training and delivering engaging health and safety training courses.

    All consultants hold membership of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA).

    Course Duration

    The NEBOSH Environmental Certificate course is delivered over 1 week (five consecutive days). This method of course delivery results in the highest pass rates as delegates go into the exams with all of the information fresh in their minds rather than trying to remember things that were taught many weeks ago, and is true for all NEBOSH courses and accredited qualifications which have an exam assessment at the end.


    This accredited NEBOSH qualification is assessed by an exam (lasting 2 hours) and a workplace-based practical environmental inspection project. The exam is conducted in our training centres at the end of your course, and the project is completed in your own workplace. The project should take no longer than 3 hours to complete and you will have 7 days from the end of the course to return it to us by post.


    On successful completion of the examinations, delegates are awarded the NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management. Certificates are issued by NEBOSH approximately 12 weeks after the completion of the course, although results are usually issued within eight weeks.

  • Accident Investigation for Environmental Incidents - Whilst environmental qualifications such as the NEBOSH Environmental Certificate will give employees a tremendous understanding of their environmental responsibilities and the potential consequences of their actions (or inactions), no amount of health and safety training will enable every possible risk to be entirely eliminated. This means that accidents and near misses will unfortunately occur, in which case suitable environmental accident and incident investigation will need to be conducted.

  • The Financial Impact of Environmental Accidents - If an environmental accident or incident does occur, along with seriously damaging the reputation of the company involved, it can also result in serious financial consequences for them too.

  • Company Waste Reduction and Recycling - Many businesses and organisations are large and have the capacity to produce large amounts of waste, far more than individuals do, which can have a tremendous negative effect upon the environment. It is therefore imperative that businesses take steps and introduce measures to not only reduce the amount of waste produced, but also to increase the amount which is recycled.
