NEIA launches new Environmental and Regulatory Compliance Project Management Course

For Immediate Release
March 30, 2018

ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland and Labrador Environmental Industry Association (NEIA) has launched a brand new course providing practitioners with project management skills and resources through the lens of an environmental professional – and customized to the regulatory conditions and requirements of the province.

“Extensive consultation with our members and within our networks revealed a need for course materials specific to industrial and regulatory conditions in Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Kieran Hanley, NEIA’s Executive Director. “Our Environmental and Regulatory Compliance Project Management (ERCPM) course will help participants managing projects – with a focus on those typically seen here in this province – proficiently do so while adhering to environmental needs and regulatory best practices in this jurisdiction.”

The two-day classroom course engages participants through five interactive modules, offering: (1) a refresher on project management principles; (2) a detailed overview of the regulatory environment in Newfoundland and Labrador; (3) considerations for projects and maintaining environmental compliance; (4) insight on the role environmental management systems (EMS) play; and tools for environmental and regulatory project management.

Hanley said that the introduction of the ERCPM course stems from the organization’s strategic plan. “Some years ago, NEIA identified the provision of relevant and quality training and professional development opportunities for its members as a key priority.” Hanley noted that the ERCPM course itself was years in development. “We are pleased to now be presenting this material to practitioners in the province, helping build skill sets and fill knowledge gaps in our green economy.”

The first delivery of the ERCPM course took place on March 22-23, 2018 with a full class. A waitlist is already in place for the next course, which will be delivered later in 2018. More information about the course can be found at http://neia.org/environmental-compliance-regulatory-project-management/ and inquiries regarding registration can be made directly to Hanley at kieran@neia.org.

“We are excited to add the ERCPM course to our training and professional development calendar, and are actively developing a number of other interesting programs as well. Stay tuned.”
