Our Training

Your Key
to Success

In today’s South Africa, it is critical to realise that appropriate and prudent integrated environmental management is essential to achieve sustainable development and to facilitate the achievement of both the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially poverty alleviation.

Our specialized training solutions improve your decision-making in environmental, waste and water governance and management. This results in improved standards in environmental decision-making throughout the country. The content of our training courses are based on international curriculums in the fields of environmental, water and waste governance. Some of our courses are accredited for CPD-points.

We also offer custom-made in-house training programmes on a number of specific environmental- and water governance matters.

We provide training solutions in environmental, waste and water governance, which lead to improved decision-making.
