Academy partners firm for certification courses
Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has partnered with the Chartered Institution of Waste Management (CIWN) to implement professional certification courses in waste and resource management.
This is a collaboration between LAWMA Academy and SafeEnviro, an environmental consulting firm, based in London.
Managing Director/CEO of LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, who disclosed this recently, said the development would create an opportunity for interested persons to run professional certification courses in waste management and related disciplines.
He said: “It is gratifying for the Agency to have this partnership at this time approved by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to open up opportunities for individual scholarship as well as investment opportunities and wealth creation in waste management and to add value to the waste management sector of Lagos State.”
He noted this would also instil best practices in waste management, which would ultimately bring forth a cleaner environment that would guarantee good health and promote environmental sustainability, adding that interested persons can run their courses and become chartered.
Odumboni stressed that the collaboration between LAWMA Academy and SafeEnviro UK would help build change agents for a sustainable environment in the state and beyond, urging residents to take advantage of this and be certified, as certificates would be issued at the end of the course.
He called on those interested in relevant courses to visit LAWMA Academy’s website, www.lawmaacademy.com for registration and inquiries, adding that while most of the courses are free, others attract fees.
