To be eligible for Environmental Professional (EP)
You must have at least five years of environmental work experience in Canada and this experience must be recent (obtained within the past ten years).
If you do not meet the minimum work experience requirement, you can apply to be an Environmental Professional in Training (EPt). Once you reach five years of experience, you are encouraged to upgrade to the EP Certification.
You hold a recognized Canadian college diploma or university degree, or equivalent international credentials.
EPs must meet a minimum standard of environmental skills and knowledge according to National Occupational Standards (NOS). The NOS are a guide for the skills and knowledge for professionals to do their jobs competently within their selected fields of specialization.
EPts will still be assessed to determine areas of strength and improvement.
In some cases you may be eligible for Environmental Professional (EP) or Environmental Professional in-training (EPt) if:
- You hold a recognized Canadian college diploma or university degree, or equivalent international credentials. If you obtained your degree or diploma outside of Canada, the USA, the UK, Australia, or New Zealand, you’ll need an educational assessment to demonstrate the Canadian equivalency.
- You are a post-secondary student in your final semester
- You’ve worked outside of Canada, you must have at least six years of environmental work experience, including one year of environmental employment with a Canadian employer.
