The Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme
The Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme (CEnvP) is recognised through over a dozen State and Federal recommendations and legislation across Australia and New Zealand. The CEnvP Program assesses environmental professionals in competency criteria of training, experience, professional conduct and ethical behaviour, and provides industry-wide certification.
The CEnvP Scheme aims to ensure that talented, skilled and ethical environmental professionals are given due recognition in line with their professional counterparts from engineering, accounting, planning and architecture. Certification provides a greater level of assurance to the community, employers, clients and professional associates of the credentials and peer recognition of an environmental professional. By certifying practitioners that meet high standards of professionalism and ethical conduct, the Scheme assists in improving environmental practice and environmental outcomes.
CEnvP Scheme operational response to COVID-19 | Update
Since March 2020, the CEnvP Program Office team have been working remotely. During this time we have reviewed and amended all components of the certification process and have integrated to be all online.
For applicants: All components of the CEnvP Program are operational and there are no interruptions in the application process.
For certified practitioners: In response to COVID-19 related restrictions and negative impacts, the standard CEnvP 2-year CPD period will be extended to 3 years; that is 100 points over 3 years, for all CEnvPs. This is a 1-year extension on standard CPD requirements and is a short-term measure only. It will apply to the current 2-year period only, i.e. 2019-20 and 2020-21. Please refer to CEnvP Scheme | COVID-19 Update and Changes post for detail.
