Who should participate?
This virtual training programme is relevant to anyone responsible for dealing with or producing hazardous waste. This includes any organisation that is involved in producing, storing, collecting, transporting, recycling or disposing of hazardous waste.
How does the virtual training programme work?
This programme is delivered over approximately a two-week period involving a blend of live virtual sessions with the tutors, delivered at set times, along with some recorded sessions/activities which can be worked around your other commitments (self-managed activities). There will be several days between the live sessions to allow plenty of time to complete these activities. The self-managed activities should take no more than a couple of hours each week, they can be accessed at any time and do not have to be completed all in one go.
All information including schedule, links to live tutor sessions using zoom, activities and materials are provided through CIWM Learn. Login details will be sent to you as part of the joining instructions. You will need to access CIWM Learn from a computer/ laptop. To get the best experience from the live sessions using zoom it is better if you are able to access it from the desktop version rather than the browser or a tablet.
The live tutor led sessions will be interactive with discussions, interactive activities, opportunity to ask questions and guidance on requirements for other modules. You will also get access to a programme specific ‘room’ in CIWM Connect so you can talk to each other and ask questions of the CIWM/ Tutors at any time during the programme.
