If you think that you have what it takes to join our expert group of people across the UK delivering the Waste Awareness Certificate, then please see the information below, and we would love to hear from you.
The Waste Awareness Certificate is delivered through a network of centres and trainers across the UK. Centres provide an administrative hub coordinating courses, delegates and trainers, and providing a main point of contact for information to and from the CIWM. Individual trainers must be approved by CIWM and work directly through an approved delivery centre.
A registered centre for the delivery of the WAC must demonstrate previous experience of organising training courses and have appropriate administrative procedures in place to manage training activities (and in particular the WAC). E.g. a centre would have responsibility for keeping their own records of their delegates and must comply with the data protection act accordingly. A centre must also ensure that all required forms and information are forwarded to CIWM in accordance with the requirements of the CIWM and its marking and QA procedures. Additionally, the centre provides a central point of contact and single invoicing address for relevant fees.

In order to become an approved trainer of the WAC, individuals must demonstrate effective training skills as well as a good understanding of the main principles and practices of the waste and resources management industry.
