Futurepast: Inc. Courses

ISO Greenhouse Gas Standards
Training for organizations, verifiers and oversight bodies

The goal of Futurepast’s training courses is to ensure that users of ISO GHG standards have access to the most accurate and useful information related to the published 2nd editions of ISO 14064.

Our organization offers high-quality training on verifying and validating greenhouse gas emissions according to the revised ISO 14064:2019 Part 3 standard. These courses allow individuals to fully understand the update and how it should be applied in practice. In order to fit your individual learning style, we offer both instructor-led courses and online courses. In accordance with ASTM E2659-18 “Standard Practice for Certificate Programs,” a certificate will be awarded for individuals who have successfully completed a course.

You will receive instruction from a leading expert. Our courses are authored by Dr. John Shideler and presented by John and other recognized verification/validation experts. John provided key input to the three ISO working groups that developed ISO 14064 Parts 1 and 3, and ISO 14067. John has more than ten years’ experience as an accredited verifier and validator. He currently serves as chairman of ISO TC207 Subcommittee 4 on Environmental performance evaluation, and as a member of the ISO Technical Management Board’s Climate Change Coordination Task Force. He is the Climate Services Manager for NSF International, an accredited third-party verification and validation body.

The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) has announced a transition plan for ISO 14064 Parts 1 and 2, but not for ISO 14064 Part 3. Accreditation Bodies shall be ready to carry out transition assessment for ISO 14064-1:2019 and ISO 14064-2:2019 within six months from the date of publication of the revised standards. Futurepast will post updated information about IAF transition plans for ISO 14064-3:2019 when it becomes available.
