More information:
The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa's (IWMSA) Eastern Cape Branch looks forward to hosting a one-day Waste Legislation Course.

Please join us for this IWMSA Recognised Training Course. We have developed a separate one-day training programme and excluded it from our Hazardous Waste Management programme to allow more time for interactive sessions and greater learner understanding.

This program includes a written knowledge test for the facilitator to determine if the candidates understand the contents of the material.

The course is IWMSA recognised and is lectured by a facilitator with years of experience in the waste field and provides comprehensive coverage of the National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008. This course would be valuable to all persons responsible for any waste activity within their organisation.

The course is lectured with intermittent learner exercises and culminates in a written examination. 

Aim of the course:
The aim of the course is to introduce learners to the International Conventions and South African legislation applicable to the management of hazardous and non-hazardous waste.

What topics will be covered?
The topics to be covered during the session include:

  • Environmental Principles and International Agreements
  • Domestic Waste Legislation
  • Domestic Policies, Strategies and Standards

Prerequisite for the course:
Speak, read and write in English to NQF Level 4
