Continuing Competence Training, Price: £300

Subject: Waste Management

Price: £300

The continuing competence scheme for waste managers is designed to ensure that the technically competent person at a waste facility has knowledge and skills that keep pace with changes made across the waste management industry, such as the introduction of new legislation, technologies and techniques. Details of the CIWM/WAMITAB COTC programme can be found at

The scheme requires technically competent people in England and Wales to pass an assessment that demonstrates individuals have kept their competence up to date. COTC holders must pass the continuing competence test every two years and this series of training modules provides information to support the learning process for the Generic Knowledge test that comprises three elements; Legislation, Health and Safety and Environment Protection.
The legislation elements are covered in the first three elements, with Environment Protection in Part Four and Health and Safety in Part Five. The content of each element is summarised below:
  1. Modules 1a, 1b and 1c address issues relating to Duty of Care and especially landfill classification and waste acceptance, completion of transfer notes and use of EWC codes;
  2. Modules 2a, 2b, 2c and 2d make up Part Two and they cover elements of hazardous waste controls and especially the completion of hazardous waste consignment notes;
  3. Part 3 comprises two modules on environmental permitting; while
  4. Pollution Prevention is covered within four modules that especially look at pollution hazards and risks to water courses;
  5. Part Five concludes the course and is made up of two modules that summarise key elements of health and safety management.

At the end of each module, a multiple choice test assesses your level of understanding. The pass mark is set at 65% and upon successful completion access to the next module is provided.

At the end of the course you will be able to download your course certificate.
