What is REnvTech?

The Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech) designation is a title which denotes professional attainment and expertise for technicians working within the environmental sector. Technicians come from a diverse range of professions underpinned by the application of technical knowledge and skills, spanning the breadth of academia, government, industry, consultancy, and other public and private sectors.

As a Registered Environmental Technician, you can demonstrate that you are distinctly skilled and committed to maintaining high standards of professionalism through continual learning.
