The Certified Environmental Practitioner (CEnvP) Scheme, is an initiative of the EIANZ aimed at boosting community and business confidence in environmental professionals.
The CEnvP scheme recognises environmental professionals in line with their professional counterparts from engineering, accounting, planning and architecture, and provides a higher level of assurance to the community, employers, clients and professional associates.
The CEnvP scheme is Australasia's first accreditation scheme designed exclusively for environmental practitioners, and is growing on average at 25 per cent each year, with intakes every March and September.
Certification is open to experienced practitioners who have a minimum of five years relevant work experience and fulfil the set criteria.
Certified practitioners meet high standards of professional and ethical conduct. The scheme is now driving environmental practice to new levels, with CEnvPs being specified to carry out certain works on major tenders and projects, demonstrating that industry already recognises the importance of this post nominal.

A points system has been devised to describe the CPD and the total of 100 points requirement. SC Specialist CPD requirements must be fulfilled through CL specific activities, with at least fifty percent consisting of activities that directly contribute to the field’s higher level processes, policy and strategy.
Certification is reviewed every two years. At this time the applicant will need to provide evidence of CPD and a statement verifying any changed circumstances including employment and ethical conduct.
