WAMITAB Level 4 Operator Competence Scheme

WAMITAB statutory awards under the Environmental Permitting Regulations 2007 are mandatory qualifications for waste facility managers and others involved with the operational management of Permitted Waste Operations. Statutory awards are RQF Level 4 qualifications that demonstrate competence in line with the WAMITAB/CIWM Operator competence. Statutory qualifications are categorised by the type of facility and the waste they accept present different levels of environmental risk. The WAMITAB/CIWM scheme categorises them into three “risk tiers” – High, Medium and Low. Typically High Risk waste activities are Landfill and Hazardous Waste related Operations, Medium Risk refers to Non Hazardous Waste Operations and low risk refers to Inert Operations. For mentoring services and other training please see our Bespoke Training Page.
