Certification Advisory Committee
We Are Enhancing EP Certification and Want Your Help
2016 is a key year for ECO Canada, with enhancing the EP designation at the core of all our activities. As changes are occurring in the sector, EP needs to evolve to reflect the needs and demands of the industry. We’ve also heard from members that we need to improve member engagement, increase our credibility, and show more leadership in the environment sector.
Join our Certification Advisory Committee
The purpose of the Committee is support the evolution of environmental certification and membership, through advising, recruiting, and testing, during the scoping and implementation process. Specific goals for the Advisory Committee include:
- Updating Environmental Professional Code of Ethics
- Providing input on knowledge development and testing
- Reviewing membership benefits
- Providing input on application processes
The Advisory Committee will meet by phone at least once every two months, and complete additional activities by email. We anticipate a commitment of 2-4 hours each month, until June 2017, with the major activity taking place from August 2016 to January 2017.
