Webinar | Early career professionals on how to become certified under the Certified Environmental Practitioner (CEnvP) Scheme

Nikki Mather (Senior Environmental Consultant, Beca), who received her General Certification last year, will talk us through her experience of navigating the application process, maintaining her CEnvP accreditation each year, and share her tips and tricks for a successful application. Questions are most welcome, and there will be time dedicated to this at the end of Nikki’s presentation. The event provides a good opportunity for early career professionals to understand the purpose and value of achieving CEnvP accreditation and how to navigate the application process.

What is the CEnvP Scheme

Established in 2004 under EIANZ, the CEnvP Scheme has grown to become the leading certifying body for environmental and social practitioners in Australia and New Zealand. The CEnvP Scheme assesses the experience, skills and ethical conduct of environmental and social professionals working across the region and the globe. It offers a suite of General and Specialist certifications including Site Contamination, Ecology, Impact Assessment, Geomorphology, Climate Change, Heritage and Land Rehabilitation.

As the environmental industry matures, people are seeking more responsibility from both industry and government. Certification helps recognize qualified environmental experts, builds trust with clients and communities, and shows employers that practitioners meet national standards.
