ESP: Being an IEMA Training Centre

How does a person who is going to book onto an environmental course distinguish between just a training company and one that is:

  • Professional
  • Has a background in environmental expertise
  • Can assure good value?


All of these qualities can be achieved by booking with an “IEMA Training Centre”.


To provide high standards of quality assurance, IEMA Approved Courses must be delivered by IEMA Registered Trainers.

Our Services

We also cater bespoke courses to achieve your companies needs as we have previously done for an international facilities management company. Our bespoke course helped the company achieve UK wide 15014001:2015 accreditation.

ESP took their requirements and then, to distinguish within the Company that the courses have true value, applied to IEMA to approve the two courses.

The courses comprised of “Operational ” and “Senior Management” levels.

Operational Level Course:

The operational level course is facilitated around a workbook that provides scenarios and workshops. It also has an immersive aspects and impacts module so by the end of the course learners are able to understand and compile an aspects and impacts register.

Senior Management Level Course:

The Senior Management level is more strategic and provides an opportunity to learn the questions they need to ask of their teams in order to ensure that the high performance of the EMS that they expect.

Our Team:

Following assessment and approval by IEMA, ESP has delivered these courses to nearly 500 learners in London, East and West Midlands and Scotland…and a few bits in between! The Company is also on track to achieve ISO14001 on all its UK operations by March 2019.

When applying for “course approval” from IEMA, all trainers must be assessed for their competency to deliver a course. This is based on their respective level of membership of IEMA i.e. competency to deliver a course. Therefore, in ESP, we have trainers that are appropriately qualified to deliver the courses. In fact, all our trainers are Associate members of IEMA or above!
