If your organization is undecided about whether it is ready for ISO 14001 environmental management system certification, ETCI's ISO 14001 for Leaders and Managers course will give you a clear understanding of the benefits and of what it will take for your organization to become certified.

If you choose not to go the certification route, this workshop will provide a good basis for developing your own "flavor" of environmental management system, specific to your organization.

Whichever situation applies to you, this is the perfect course to get all of your team on the "same page," understanding what is involved, using the same terminology and with a solid knowledge base to ease the certification process.

ISO 14001 for Leaders and Managers is available under ETCI's GSA-MAS contract.

How You’ll Learn It

All ETCI trainings are fast-paced, interactive, and hands-on, designed for you to learn what you need to learn quickly, easily, and enjoyably. As each concept or skill is introduced, you’ll have the opportunity to practice it during the workshop, with situations as similar as possible to those you’ll face back on the job.

Each workshop is specifically tailored to the needs of its participants, within a broader framework of general principles appropriate to the topic.
