CEnvP

The Certified Environmental Practitioner Scheme (CEnvP) was established in 2004 by the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ).[1] A Certified Environmental Practitioner is the highest grade of general environmental practice in Australia and New Zealand and recognises outstanding practical experience and expertise, as well as high ethical standards.

CEnvP is a post nominal conferred upon environmental practitioners who successfully fulfil the requirements of a meticulous application process, which includes an application form, panel interview and subsequent ratification by the CEnvP Board. Intakes occur twice a year, usually in March and September (prior to 2011 was June and December).

The program aims to assist in ensuring that certain levels of professional environmental practice and ethics are met. By using certain application criteria and a set of ethical scenarios, each candidate is measured according to the same set of guidelines, helping to ensure a standardised level of practice, which in turn is expected to boost community and employer confidence. [2]

Not all CEnvPs are based in Australia and New Zealand, and it is noted that CEnvPs are drawn from a number of industry sectors including government, education, engineering, law and other public sectors. They share a commitment to high ethical standards and professional conduct which is measured by their peers during the application process.

Following certification, all CEnvPs must maintain high standards of professional and ethical conduct, as well as maintaining their commitment to professional development (CPD Log) or they risk being struck off the registry.

There is an online directory of all CEnvPs.[4]
