It only seems like yesterday that ISO 14001:2015 was published and now here we are staring down the barrel of the end of the 3-year transition!

Time is Running Out

Certified Organisations have until September 2018 to transition to the new Standard and similarly Exemplar Global certified auditors are required to provide evidence of knowledge to these ‘new’ requirements.

Even if you are not certified with Exemplar Global and are involved in an environmental management system implemented and maintained to ISO 14001:2015 or are in the process of transitioning this year, completing this course is a great way to acquire the knowledge needed to understand the 2018 requirements.

We have 2 options:

Option 1:

ISO 14001:2015 Bridging – Environmental (EMS)

This bridging module allows previously trained environmental professionals the ability to upgrade their existing Environmental Management ISO certifications to meet ISO 14001:2015 standards.  It is designed for students who hold a previous competency against ISO 14001:2004 and are able to provide evidence in the form of one of the following certificates:

Option 2:

ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems

This full course suite is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems and is designed for newcomers into the industry or students who do not hold a previous competency against ISO 14001:2004.

If you haven’t already upgraded or become familiar with ISO 14001:2015, now is the time to do it!  If you think the last 3 years went fast, imagine how fast the next few months will go to the deadline!
