A Level in Environmental Studies £ 345.00 The Environmental Studies specification enables students to gain an insight into the environment, and the scientific processes that control and affect it. The central theme is the development of an understanding of how different events and cycles within the environment interrelate, how they influence subsequent environmental events, the human impacts on these events and cy-cles, and the strategies that can be used to minimise the problems caused. This is a complete revision of the AQA GCE Environmental Studies specification. Business & the Environment £ 299.99 In 1990 the concept of the environmental management system ( EMS) was new to many organisations. However, it has subsequently developed very rapidly, becoming the subject of a number of international standards and schemes. The first national environmental management standard, BS7750, was published in 1992 and the European Union ( or Community as it was then called) adopted the same basic approach in 1993 with the introduction of its Eco- Management and Audit Scheme ( EMAS). An international standard, ISO 14001, replaced BS 7750 in 1996. In this course we look at how these standards and schemes have developed, the differences between them, and what benefits an organisation can expect to gain from adopting a recognised EMS. Conservation £ 299.99 Man is creating an urban environment where so many goods are being concentrated that consumer desire, comparable to predatory instinct, is being over stimulated. From the moment a child can hear a radio or watch a television, this instinct is being stimulated and exploited by loud, noisy radio and television advertisements and garish neon signs and posters. These adverts do not merely beg person to buy, they aim to convince people that they need these things and cannot possibly live without them. This is the outcome of mass production that must find avenues to sell the goods. True, these methods create employment, but the fact remains, they are using up the earth's animal and mineral resources at an alarming rate. Ecology £ 299.99 Ecology is the study of the relationship between plants and animals and their physical and biological environment. The field of ecology is a distinct scientific discipline, it does contribute to the study and understanding of environmental problems. This College course in Ecology will provide a detailed explanation on many aspects of the eco balance in an easy to understand format and help you to understand how all parts of the environment work together. Environmental Aspects & Impacts £ 299.99 The Environmental Aspects and Impacts course is intended to help you guide your organisation towards a strategy that will improve its overall environmental performance and comply with recent environmental legislation. This course takes you through the first steps in introducing an environmental management system into your organisation. In order to accomplish this, you will explore in detail both local and global environmental issues, and how your company can reduce its contribution to these problems. Environmental Auditing & Reporting £ 299.99 The first session introduces you to the different types of environmental audit, what they aim to achieve, and how they differ from similar activities such as reviews and inspections. It goes on to discuss the benefits and disadvantages of auditing in more detail.
