Mentoring & other CIWM (WAMITAB) related Services & Training

In addition to our CIWM (WAMITAB) Assessment services, EWS also provides several other training support services.


Mentoring for CIWM (WAMITAB) Operator Competence

Mentoring is provided on a one-to-one basis with one of our highly experienced Assessors who are able to assist learners who are struggling with knowledge gaps. In order to help those learners complete the question paper component of their CIWM (WAMITAB) Level 4 Operator Competence Qualifications, we provide a one-day Environmental Awareness Course. This course is aimed at helping learners improve their knowledge across all the main regulatory and legislative requirements of the waste industry.

Please note that EWS follow strict codes of conduct and therefore Mentoring and Assessment are never carried out by the same Assessor.


CIWM (WAMITAB) Continuing Competency Refresher Course

We provide a refresher course for those who need to renew their CIWM (WAMITAB) / CoTC competency by taking on the online test to continue to act as the site competent person. This needs to be taken every 2 years to be compliant. Please Contact Us for details.
