Advanced Environmental Monitoring and Modelling

Overview:

Introduction:

This course Environmental Monitoring and Modelling training course is designed to allow participants with the applicable skills and knowledge to evaluate and report on the conformance of an environmental management system and effectively implement an environmental management system. It provides the knowledge to develop, manage, and monitor Environmental Management Systems (EMS) suitable to the needs of their organization focusing on environmental risks, activities, characteristics, and impacts.

This training course aims to present to the participants the idea, methodology, and essential tools of environmental modeling. Nowadays, Models are imperative tools in environmental studies and management. To better understand environmental systems, to forecast their behavior, and to develop effective management strategies, it is essential to bring together ecological, socio-economic, and technological aspects of environmental problems.

As concern grows for constantly improving the quality of the environment, organizations of all types and sizes are progressively turning their attention to the environmental effects of their activities, products, and services. The environmental act of an organization is of importance to internal and external concerned parties. Achieving thorough environmental performance requires an organizational commitment to a systematic approach and continual improvement of their environmental performance.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Understand types of environmental aspects and their environmental impacts
  • Understand the requirements of newly revised ISO 14001:2018 standard
