Very good training. All businesses should have at least one Green Champion.

Foundation course

The foundation course introduces the opportunities and threats that are driving Scottish organisations to become more resource efficient, and then quickly guides you, step-by-step, through the process of making your organisation more resource efficient. 

The foundation course contains nine bite-sized lessons, each taking around 10 - 15 minutes to complete. Quizzes along the way to test your knowledge and enhance your learning.

Once the course has been completed, a course certificate is awarded and you can continue your learning with the practical and advanced modules.

Practical modules

The practical modules provide training on a range of skills and techniques that will help you to bring about and enjoy savings for the long term. You are encouraged to pick and chose the modules that are appropriate for your organisation, and the modules provide practical advice on how to achieve waste, water and energy savings. 

The practical modules can only be accessed once you have been awarded the foundation course certificate.

Advanced modules

These modules cover advanced skills and techniques that will help you bring about further improvements in your organisation. Building upon the techniques learned in the foundation training, the advanced modules can be completed in the order that best suits you and your organisation. 

The advanced modules can only be accessed once you have been awarded the foundation course certificate.
