Training and Events

Guided by our Competency Framework, we deliver an annual Professional Development Programme of training courses, conferences and webinars, covering themes and topics identified as relevant to the needs of our membership and the ecology/environmental management sectors.


Our training programme offers around 140 courses each year which are delivered across the UK and Ireland and all are led by trainers with specialist skills and expert knowledge. We work closely with employers and practitioners to ensure that the content is relevant and delivered in an engaging way. Our programme includes both field-based practical courses and classroom courses, as well as masterclasses, which provide a more in-depth exploration of a key topic. Upcoming training courses can be viewed in the listing below, or you can download our latest Professional Development Programme.

We also offer in-house training courses please contact the Professional Development Team to discuss your requirements.


We run a programme of one and two-day conferences across the UK and Ireland, covering topics that are relevant to ecologists and environmental managers in all employment sectors. These events offer excellent opportunities for sharing knowledge and enabling you to network with fellow professionals. You can view upcoming conferences in the listing below and access presentations from our conferences over the last two years in our Resource Hub.


Our webinar programme runs from Autumn through to the Spring and offers bite-sized online sessions, ensuring that even the busiest of professionals can access key updates from experts in their field. Our webinar programme is included in the Training and Events listing and you can also view the Zoom Webinar System Requirements, prior to joining.

Recordings of our free webinars from the last two years can be accessed in the Resource Hub and recordings of paid for webinars can be purchased by contacting the Finance and Office Team.

If you are interested in offering a webinar as part of our programme, please contact the Professional Development Team to discuss your proposed topic.

Member Network Events

These are shorter events, such as workshops and field trips, that are usually held during a lunch break or at the end of the working day. The events are often low cost or free and are organised and run by CIEEM Member Network volunteers. Some are open to members only and some are accessible by all. Just one of the many benefits of being a CIEEM member is reduced rates to attend our training and events.
