Our flagship training is the Accredited Waste Management Training Courses and includes a multitude of unit standards to choose from.

Please note that should you have a group of more than ten people who require training, a concerted effort will be made to assist you with that training.  We are keen to know what our member's training requirements are, so that we can provide you with the best available options for your specific needs.
