Guided by our Competency Framework, we deliver an annual Professional Development Programme of training courses, conferences, webinars and member network events, covering themes and topics identified as relevant to the needs of our membership and the ecology/environmental management sectors.
Just one of the many benefits of being a CIEEM member is reduced delegate fees to attend events within our Professional Development Programme.
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-based courses, as well as masterclasses which provide a more in-depth exploration of a key topic. Upcoming training courses can be viewed on the Training & Events page, or you can download our latest Professional Development Programme brochure.
We also offer in-house training courses, please contact the Professional Development Team at firstname.lastname@example.org 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 on the Training & Events page and access presentations from conferences held 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. You can view the Zoom Webinar System Requirements prior to joining.
Recordings of our free-to-view webinars from the last two years can be accessed from the Resource Hub and recordings of paid for webinars can be purchased by contacting the Office and Finance Team at email@example.com.
