Credentialing

2016

NEHA credential holders are professionals covering an impressive range of environmental

health concerns. They ensure that basic community necessities are met such as clean air,

safe food, and potable water.

NEHA credentialing

leads the way for practitioners to achieve a set of defined competencies,

evidenced through testing and maintained through continuing education. These benchmarks

of excellence have become the gold standard in recognizing those who are uniquely equipped

to handle the wide breadth of environmental health issues.

NEHA has more than 6,000 credential holders in all areas of environmental health.

In partnership with Professional Testing Inc. and professionals in the field, NEHA updated the

REHS/RS and CP-FS exams in FY16 to ensure that the highest and most relevant standards are

part of our credential test process.
