There are a wide range of issues currently facing organisations in the whole area of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). These include: process and best practice, practical requirements, the legislative framework and cost benefit analysis among others.

Portobello Institute's Environmental Assessment Programme is designed to provide a critical overview of the theory and practice of EIA as operated within Ireland and under international legislation. The course is recognised by Engineers Ireland (the Professional body for engineers and engineering in Ireland)

At the end of this programme you will:

Understand the process and best
practice for EIA and relate them to current best procedures in Ireland operating under relevant EU Directives.
Identify and evaluate an appropriate environmental policy
for a project/organisation.
Understand the specialist roles in the environmental impact assessment process.
Manage, understand and oversee the creation of an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
It will also allow assessors of completed EIA’s to make sure they comply with EU standards and will give them an understanding of the benchmark standards the reports should be working to.
