The Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA's) Eastern Cape Branch looks forward to hosting a one-day Waste Legislation Course on 08 November 2017 at Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, Harrower Depot, Port Elizabeth.

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

Please note:

  • That the course will only take place if we have a minimum of ten delegates.
  • That you will receive an e-mail confirming whether or not the training will take place two weeks prior to the scheduled training date.
