ISO 50001 Foundation Training Course

  • Course Duration: 1 day


ISO 50001 provides organisations with a systematic means of developing and implementing an Energy Management System (EnMS). It defines requirements which, if addressed effectively, will deliver real benefits to the organisation. These include: significant savings in energy costs, reduced carbon footprint, demonstrated compliance with current energy regulations and adaptability to future changes in carbon levies.

This course provides understanding of ISO 50001 requirements and how they can be met.

  • Individuals who will be involved in developing appropriate energy management strategies, action plans, programmes and procedures to meet ISO 50001 requirements within their own areas.
