CIWM (WAMITAB) Level 5 – Healthcare Waste Manager Qualifications

CIWM (WAMITAB) Level 5 Healthcare Waste Manager Qualifications

We have been successfully approved to deliver three new qualifications designed to provide individuals working in the healthcare waste management industry with the knowledge and skills to operate their site safely and effectively while minimising environmental impacts.

The qualifications have been developed with the support of the National Performance Advisory Group to the NHS and are in response to the environment agency requirement for NHS managers to demonstrate an appropriate level of competence.

CIWM (WAMITAB) Level 5 Healthcare Waste Manager consists of 3 pathways:

  • Level 5 Certificate for Healthcare Waste Manager at a Healthcare Facility

This qualification is ideal for experienced people managing healthcare waste management operations that require evidence of their competence. The advantage of this qualification is that you do not require access to a waste site.

There are 20 units to be completed.

  • Level 5 Certificate for Healthcare Waste Manager at a Healthcare Waste Treatment Facility

This qualification is ideal for experienced people managing healthcare waste management treatment operations that require evidence of their competence.  You will need to have access to working the working environment as the qualification is assessed on the job.

There are 15 units to be completed.

  • Level 5 Certificate for Healthcare Waste Manager at a Healthcare Waste Transfer Operation

This qualification is ideal for experienced people managing healthcare waste management treatment operations that require evidence of their competence.  You will need to have access to working the working environment as the qualification is assessed on the job.

The optional units cover a range of topics for all pathways allowing for the end qualification to be tailored to meet the individual’s role.

It is a flexible qualification that can be tailored to meet the requirements of specific job roles in the sector or within a particular organisation. People already working in relevant roles could be employed by NHS, waste management companies or third sector (not-for-profit) organisations.
