IEMS has a wide range of courses aimed at all participating levels from equipment operators to senior executives. This range is designed to build knowledge across any organization and provide an integrated solution to your training needs.

Our courses are designed and developed in line with international conventions and national laws and our system of needs analysis, allowing us to produce course material specific to the exact needs of any organization.

Our courses seek to do three things:

  • Reaffirm that a lot of what you do actually works, and help you understand why
  • Reinforce some of your thoughts on what you could/should be doing as an operator/manager/leader
  • Reveal some new insights into yourself, into others and into management and leadership

Our international experts are seasoned professionals that provide clarity to the international and regional expectations and assumptions, especially with regard to competency standards.
