Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Certification is voluntary and can broaden the work opportunities for environmental restoration planners. The Society for Ecological Restoration offers two types of certifications: the Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioners (CERPs) and the Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioners-in-Training (CERPITs). Senior-level environmental restoration professionals who meet work experience requirements may be qualified for the CERP designation, whereas recent graduates and those with less work experience may qualify for the CERPIT designation. Further information is available at http://www.ser.org/page/CERPProgramOverview. The American Institute of Certified Planners, a division of the American Planning Institute, offers certification, with more details at https://www.planning.org/certification. Environmental restoration planners may also receive the Certified Environmental Professional (CEP) designation through the Academy of Board Certified Environmental Professionals (a subsidiary of the National Association of Environmental Professionals), https://www.abcep.org/certification.
