  • This certificate aims to help reduce the environmental impact of the ICT function of the organisation. 
  • It also looks at how ICT can be used to reduce the carbon ‘cost’ across the whole organisation.

The course aims to:

  • Introduce and explain the fundamental principles of Green ICT & the science driving adoption of ‘greener’ working practices.
  • Provide delegates with knowledge of how sustainable ICT can be used to help reduce the impact on the environment by organisations.
  • Prepare candidates for the BCS exam leading to the Foundation in Green ICT qualification.
  • Equip the delegate with the tools to be able to undertake further study in the field of Green ICT.
  • The Knowledge Academy sees this course as an essential introduction for directors and senior managers – particularly those involved in ICT decision making and procurement. 
  • It is a useful qualification for IT professionals already involved in ‘greening’ the ICT function, formalising their current knowledge, challenging misconceptions and building higher levels of understanding.
  • Successful delegates will be well equipped to develop green solutions for their organisation and have an excellent understanding of how Green ICT can be implemented to reduce the carbon footprint and lower business costs.

I'd like to thank the staff at The Knowledge Academy for their professionalism and care in arranging and delivering the Prince2 training. I would recommend them to colleagues without hesitation

I first chose The Knowledge Academy as they stood out from rafts of training providers due to the low prices. After attending the Course I was impressed with the in-depth knowledge of the Trainer so decided to stick with the Knowledge academy for all of the courses. I have never been great at classroom learning but I found these courses very engaging, I think the quality of the training supplied speaks for it itself as I passed every exam first time.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent training that you provided. I have always struggled with staying attentive in a class room environment and was concerned by this, however, I have to say you kept me engaged in the learning process and I thought your teaching style and knowledge of the subject was exceptional.
