IES & SocEnv webinar: How CEnv Has Helped Me and My Career

Wednesday, 21 October 2020 - 5:00pm to 5:45pm

Chartered Environmentalists come from no single profession but operate across all professional sectors. Achieving the Chartered Environmentalist denotes your sound knowledge, proven experience and a profound commitment to sustainable best practice within your field of expertise.

The Chartered Environmentalist qualification provides professionals with legal credibility enabling expert witness participation, professional standing recognising equality of excellence across a wide range of environment disciplines and opportunities for career progression. 

In this webinar three CEnv professionals join us to share their experiences of securing the designation, the opportunities which obtaining the qualification have presented and the positive impacts achieving CEnv has had on their work.
