ASTM International is in the final stages of developing an environmental professional (EP) certification program and anticipates rolling it out in 2024. The certification process will require individuals to:
- Meet the education, training, and experience criteria outlined in 40 CFR 312.10, and
- Complete a Phase I training course; and pass a written examination.
According to the ASTM, the program will provide an additional option to encourage a skilled and knowledgeable workforce of certified professionals to comply with industry standards, increase customer confidence, and help stay competitive in an evolving market.
This webinar will outline the program’s purpose, what it entails, and what one receives upon completing it.
