The ‘Learn’ package includes an eLearning module as well as subscription to our Waste Expert platform for 1 year. The eLearning covers the core principles of waste management, helping you and your staff become self-sufficient experts.

The Learn subscription also doubles up as an encyclopaedia and reference platform for sustainable waste management which is constantly being evolved.

The eLearning component is accredited by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), so if you’re a member, it counts as 12 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
