About the course
This course provides hands-on opportunities to learn and apply tools, techniques, and systems of environmental management in oil, gas, and petrochemical industries. Participants work as a member of a team to develop and improve the environmental management system (EMS) and environmental performance of company Petros, a fictitious but highly-realistic case study. Application of the learned techniques is practiced at the upstream Caspian Explorer platform and the downstream Orkney Depot.

Well-blended exercises, problem-solving, and scenarios are used to practice the application of learning in authentic situations. The course is designed to introduce participants to solutions to environmental challenges and to become an agent for change in their own organization. The course follows-on from HS13, and is recommended for those developing a career in environmental management and/or planning to progress towards Full or Associate membership of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) using our Accredited Environmental Practitioner program (HS71).
