Heritage Training Academy


The Heritage Training Academy has been established to provide greater understanding of environmental concepts and to develop and enhance the skills of people that are involved in the management of environmental sustainability systems.

The courses offered by Heritage have been developed over a period of years during which we have identified the challenges and shortcomings associated with the implementation of the Heritage Environmental Management System.  Aligned to the ISO4001 standard, course content addresses the fundimentals of environmental management, climate change and human resource development and each workshop is presented in an informative, interactive and professional manner by our own trainer.

Where specialised skills are needed, Heritage includes the services and experience of recognised specialists in their own fields, thereby ensuring the most effective and valuable learning experiences.
