This training is excellent for companies that face having to introduce or construct an environmental management system. I gained knowledge of environmental management systems both in theory and practice. The trainer was very knowledgeable about the subject and imparted information very well. I’ve got a better understanding of why we do things in different ways and, above all, why we have an environmental management system. This course has inspired me! I often use the course documentation as reference..
