Courses in Development

NEBOSH have issued a new syllabus for their Environmental Diploma, and as part of this updating process, have introduced an International version.

RRC are currently developing new Classroom and Online courses for both versions. and these will be available in the Autumn.

Students Currently Studying 2010 Specification

Students already enrolled on the 2010 syllabus will complete their course as normal as there are no arrangements to transition to the new course.  RRC will be offering a discount for existing students wanting to transfer to the New Syllabus, but given the extensive changes to the new syllabus students would fully study the new courses.

Assessments for the 2010 specification will be phased out as follows:


January 2018 – last date for students to sit the examination for the first time, so all students MUST sit their first exam in January 2018.

July 2018, January 2019 & July 2019 will be available for re-sits only.


February 2018 – last date for students to submit for the first time, so all students MUST make their first submission by February 2018.

August 2018, February 2019 & August 2019 will be available for re-submissions only.

If the qualification is not successfully completed by final submission dates, students will need to enrol on the new specification course.


IEMA Certificate in Environmental Management

The IEMA Certificate in Environmental Management provides detailed knowledge of environment and sustainability principles, and will arm you with management tools and skills to deliver positive change. It is aimed at staff who already have a foundation level of environmental/sustainability knowledge (gained from work experience or through a course such as the IEMA Foundation Certificate).

This course can be studied as a classroom course, by e-Learning or in-company.

Project Delayed - late release by IEMA on new content. Expected launch January 2018 for classroom and online courses.
