What is a Certified Environmental Specialist?

If you have a natural interest in science and a passion for protecting the environment, then a career as an environmental specialist may be right for you. A certified environmental specialist should be able to discuss up-to-date environmental laws and regulations, and know the requirements of the Clean Air Act and RCRA. Certified environmental specialists assist businesses in providing policies that promote the general health and safety of the population and the environment. These specialists are typically hired as environmental consultants for companies.

What is the EP Designation?

Having the EP designation means that someone is an Environmental Professional. These people are qualified to conduct and/or supervise a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment. This is a process of evaluating the environmental liability of a real estate asset. This can include a site inspection, a review of the historical records for the property as well as researching governmental records.
