1. Property Investment: Learn The Fundamentals Of Property Investment

In almost every developed nation across the world, property is making the news headlines on an increasingly frequent basis. Alongside all of this we hear about the ‘property millionaires’ – people on average incomes who ‘struck it lucky’ and happened to buy a house in the right place just before the price rose miraculously, enabling them to cash up and live the life most of us can only ever dream about.

So is property investing really based on luck? Have we missed the boat now that house prices are doubling every 5 – 10 years? Is this really a good time to take the risk and enter the property market?

About Property Investment
This property investment course will help you determine your own answer to that question. Many people make a full time living at property investing. It is possible to do this however the key is to gain the information that can help you make a wise investment decision. This property investment course also focuses on ways that an individual can enter the property market without needing to spend full-time hours doing so.

2. Eco Building Design: Learn To Establish A Balance Between Technology, Culture And Biology

Building biology, bio-house design, biological architecture and ecological building all refer to the construction of a building along lines of more natural, renewable resources and health of the occupants. In other words buildings become more people-friendly. It aims to establish a balance between technology, culture and biology.

Ensuring a building is constructed to meet the environmental needs of the area takes not only construction knowledge, but also skills in the art of eco-design. This course goes a long way to help provide these added skills and knowledge.

3. Business and the Environment: Learn The Principles Underlying Environmental Management

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.

While neither ISO 14001 nor EMAS prescribe the level of environmental performance to be achieved, they do require a commitment to continual improvement. The extent of this improvement is for the individual organisation to decide and should be quantified in objectives and targets where practicable. At first glance, continual improvement may appear to be a particularly onerous commitment, but it is vital if the environmental management system is to be seen as credible by interested parties. This course looks at the importance and benefits of continual improvement, how it can be achieved, and how some of the barriers to its achievement can be overcome.

Any organisation undertaking a programme of continual improvement needs not only to establish procedures for its work processes but also to regard all procedures, and the processes to which they relate, as being capable of improvement. This course focuses on what is involved in improving work procedures and processes in order to reduce the environmental impacts of your organisation.

A sudden environmental crisis - such as a large fire, explosion, release of toxic gas or major water pollution incident - is probably the most feared occurrence by individuals with responsibility for an organisation's environmental performance. However, slow-acting pollution incidents can create a crisis that damages not only the environment but also the organisation, both financially and in terms of its reputation - and the reputation of its products - among the public.

Emergency planning is required to deal with any incident that could result in loss of life, ill health or damage to the environment.

By the end of the course you should be able  to:

  • Outline the basic principles underlying environmental management.
  • Describe some of the environmental management guidance, systems and schemes available to your organisation.
  • Describe the development and purpose of environmental management systems and standards.
  • Outline the main requirements and differences between ISO 14001 and the Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS), and explain the appropriateness of each to your organisation.
  • Describe the various methods available for implementing an environmental management system (EMS) in your organisation.
  • Outline the benefits of integrating an EMS into existing management systems within the organisation
  • Describe the importance of achieving continual improvement within the EMS.
  • Outline the benefits, risks and costs to your organisation of improving environmental performance.
  • Explain the importance of commitment at all levels in the organisation to the successful implementation of an EMS.
  • Explain the role of working methods in the environmental performance of your organisation.
  • Outline the methods available for assessing the environmental impacts of work procedures and processes.
  • Explain how changes can be successfully made to work procedures and processes.
  • Explain the environmental consequences of sudden and gradual pollution incidents.
  • Describe the measures to be taken in the event of a pollution incident occurring in your organisation.
  • Explain the importance of devising emergency plans to deal with the environmental effects of accidents.
