ISO 44001 Collaborative Leaders Course

PDF Version RegisterMore Information



The Collaborative Leaders Accreditation is to provide suitably-qualified candidates with knowledge and skills of ISO 44001, such that its implementation brings value to their organizations.



The ISO 44001 is the International Standard that provides a strategic collaborative framework for organisations, based on ICW’s CRAFT methodology, to build and manage collaborative relationships, so that the relationships are effective, optimized and sustainable to deliver benefits for all stakeholders.

As ISO 44001 has become increasingly recognized and adopted, ICW identified a significant need for organisations to
develop internal champions / facilitators to lead and support implementation programs, who have the knowledge and skills so that organisations gain real value from the adoption of the Standard.

Who should attend?
