Course types

The training team is led by accredited trainers, holding the Professional Trainers Certificate awarded by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH). All trainers are experienced in the practical application of CERC in-house software. The training courses continue to develop, building on the experience gained both during training and through our own consultancy and development work.

Scheduled courses

Training is given in small groups of up to 4 people. Courses have a practical emphasis and include a mixture of demonstrations, worked examples and discussion of software applicability.

One-day refresher courses

Courses are aimed at people who have not been for training or used the software for some time. Courses cover latest features of CERC software, changes in methods and modelling. The courses will bring you back up to speed quickly, enabling you to carry out your pending air quality projects.

Tailored courses

CERC staff have extensive experience in applying our in-house software through environmental consultancy. Training courses can therefore be tailored to give guidance and more in-depth instruction into specialised applications of the software, such as odour nuisance or modelling airports. Alternatively, you may prefer to use your own studies as the basis for training.

On-site training

On-site training is not available at present.
