The Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP) designation is a title which recognises the level of professional practice of people operating within the environmental sciences. It signifies a standard of environmental expertise, practice, and skills held by professionals spanning the breadth of academia, government, industry, consultancy, and other public and private sectors.
Registered Environmental Practitioners are committed to acting in accordance with the best principles for the mitigation of environmental harm and enhancement of environmental quality, use their skills and experience to serve the needs of the environment and society, and strive to uphold the integrity and competence of the profession as a whole.
As a Registered Environmental Practitioner, you can demonstrate that you are distinctly skilled and committed to maintaining high standards of professionalism through continual learning.
