The EMS Association is offering two international courses in Australia in September 2009. The three-day ISOeasy courses walks participants through the process of using an eco-map and then develops a full EMS in a sequence of easy to follow and logical steps.
The course will be presented by Heinz Werner Engel, developer of the Ecomapping process and one of the world leading experts in EMS systems. He will be supported by Genevieve Carruthers, EMS specialist and trained in Ecomapping.
Numbers will be limited to no more than 15 in each course, to allow the greatest interaction between trainers and participants.
