*This course does not include a copy of ISO 14001:2015 as it is not required for you to complete your training.  Course content includes extracts from the standards in the form of clause statements as per the example below.

The courses are broken up into a series of modules and the assessment is completed as part of the learning, step-by-step, module-by-module.

Knowledge Check

For each module, you view the content and then do the knowledge check as many times as you like.  These are marked instantly by the learning management system so you know exactly which content you may need to review further.  This gets you confident and prepared to do the final module assessment.

Module Assessment

Once you are confident that you have a thorough understanding of the content you can move on to the module assessment.

The module assessment is the same format as the knowledge check so you know exactly what you need to do.  You are given three attempts at each assessment, after which it is locked for review by a trainer and assessor to see how we can best help you.  The assessment is then unlocked for another three attempts.  This means you are given the support you need to review content, review results, and consult with assessors.
