Academy & CPD Training

Increasing awareness and inspiring others is a big part of what we do. We created ATG Academy to provide training to businesses, aimed at preparing others to deal with environmental challenges.

Our training sessions are accredited by the CPD Standards Office™, which mean they have been checked for accuracy and content, and account for qualifying hours required by the RIBA for architects and the RICS for the construction industry.

All 4 of our courses are CPD accredited and our Japanese Knotweed, Asbestos in Soils and Remediation courses are free for businesses to undertake, provided at a location of your choice. Each of these three courses takes 60 mins to complete, and delegates will receive a certificate on completion.

Our Environmental Awareness Training takes between 2 and 3 hours to complete and demonstrates how to effectively deal with an oil/chemical spill on your premises. Part of this course is class-based, but it also contains a hands-on exercise, allowing you to practice what you’ve learned.

If you’d like more information or to book, please call or email us.
