CoTC / CIWM (WAMITAB) Assessments

Albion Environmental, as an experienced provider of waste management qualifications, provide cost effective pricing and solutions for delivering the necessary qualifications for your organization, through our UK-wide, SQA and CIWM (WAMITAB) approved assessors.

Our assessors cover the full range of qualifications from level one operators all the way through to management qualifications and also cover a wide range of waste management processes including incinerators and anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities all over the UK.

Over the years, our knowledge and experience has allowed us to develop and refine our methods for delivering CIWM (WAMITAB) qualifications, and our investment in terms of our assessing staff and software systems, ensures we manage the assessment process and make the delivery of CIWM (WAMITAB) assessment more cost effective.

After a recent review of our methods for carrying out CIWM (WAMITAB) assessment we have identified the following advantages for our clients:

  • Clear timetable for completion of awards.
  • Experienced and qualified assessors to support candidates and assess competence.
  • Web based systems to allow easy evidence gathering, including by phone app.
  • Web based system allowing easy assessing and verification.
  • Robust system to ensure quality of the candidates work.
  • Qualification system which is rated highly by both SQA and CIWM (WAMITAB) at all accreditation visits.

Although the legislation differs between Scotland, England and Wales and Northern Ireland our overall view is that CIWM (WAMITAB) qualifications have been available for over 20 years and are a tried and tested method for demonstrating candidates are competent to manage your site. Any change in law does not change that and these qualifications continue to offer significant benefit to candidates and employers alike.

Our assessors cover the full range of qualifications at facilities all over the UK.

Continuing Competence

In England and Wales only, CIWM (WAMITAB’s) Operator Competence Scheme ‘The Scheme’ has a requirement for individuals to keep their competence up to date. Therefore all competent persons falling within ‘The Scheme’ will be required to demonstrate ‘Continuing Competence’ and this will be appropriate to the level of risk posed by the facility so that it remains proportional.

SEPA Site Competence Interview Support

SEPA have recently implemented bespoke CoTC interviews with their national waste team, for Site Managers to complete. SEPA’s bespoke assessment will be limited to operators who wish to hold a single site licence only.

This 2-part mentoring course (contact time 4-5 hrs total) is designed to provide candidates with knowledge of general waste management legislation and operations related to the management of their specific facility.
