AEC & Exhibition Credentialing Affiliated Organizations

Each year, NEHA holds its annual conference with over 175 EH&P sessions and a 100-booth exhibition for learning about the latest products, services, and information in the industry. Full-time students may register at a BIG discount and see what’s going on in the EH world, while meeting and networking with practicing professionals from across the country.

Students graduating from accredited environmental health programs may sit for the NEHA Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Registered Sanitarian (REHS/RS)  credential exam immediately upon graduating. Other students have to gain two years of practical experience before trying for this credential. Impress potential employers with these initials after your name, indicating you've earned this widely-respected credential.

Consider attending some of the events hosted by the NEHA affiliate in your state. Many affiliates encourage student participation. If you plan to work in the state where you're going to school, it’s a great way to begin networking.
