Course Aim

The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Regulations require certain developments to go through an assessment process. This course will support you to identify and assess potentially significant environmental effects of developments.  The EIA process is complex, involving screening, scoping, assessment and evaluation. Each stage will help you in identifying what measures should be proposed and applied to the final scheme to reduce impacts.

By attending, this masterclass will help you understand what Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is, and identify the different stages of the process.


Through a combination of expert trainer input, discussion and group work, you will:

  • Work through different case studies to gain a better understanding of the EIA process and all relevant legislation
  • Gain valuable insight into what is EIA and how to apply the different stages of the process (screening, scoping, assessment and evaluation)
