Potential Credential:

Registered Environmental Technician ( RET)

 

- NEHA’s RET is a baseline credential for entrylevel

hazardous materials professionals. The credential is an excellent way for recent, two year graduates (AA) or career changing professionals, to demonstrate competency in the Core requirements of hazardous materials handling and management. The RET exam encompasses the skill standards defined by the U.S. Department of Education and the Center for Occupational Research and Development.

 

Track One: Requires successful completion of a two-year A.A., A.A.S., or Certificate program in hazardous materials/waste management. With this level of education, there is no experience requirement.

 

Track Two:

Requires successful graduation from a standard four-year high school or acceptable equivalency certification, and, a minimum of two years work experience in the hazardous materials/waste field.

 

Work Experience Required?  No
Either training or work experience required, but not both?  Yes
Oral or Written Exam Required?  Yes
Renewal Required?  Every 2 Year(s)
Renew through Continuing Educational Units(CEU)?  Yes
Renew through Re-Examination?  No
Renew through Continuing Professional Development(CPD)?  No
Does applicant have choice of at least two options from above for renewal (CEU, CPD, or exam)?  No

National Registry of Environmental Professionals

 

We at the NREP are dedicated to professionally and legally enhancing the recognition of those individuals who possess the education, training, and experience as qualified environmental engineers, technologists, managers, technicians, and scientists. We aim to consolidate such recognition into a single, viable source so that the public at large, the government, insurers, and employers can easily see, understand, and justify the importance of these individuals.

OCTE Anne Freeman's insight:

Must conduct more research about this.

 

Environmental Technology -ET Certificate Recognition Program

Environmental Technician (ET) NREP provides an Environmental Registry listing for individuals conducting environmental technician job functions. The ET is a certificate recognition program designed to support the supervisory activities of NREP certified professionals and to recognize the efforts and abilities of their technicians by allowing them to participate in NREP related programs and activities. This program is not certification, but is a first step in professional recognition.

Education: Completion of an OSHA 4-hour Hazwoper training program, or other NREP approved training.

Application: In addition to completing the official NREP application form, the applicant must provide letter of recommendation from an NREP certified professional.

Environmental engineering technicians carry out the plans that environmental engineers develop. They test, operate, and, if necessary, modify equipment for preventing or cleaning up environmental pollution.
OCTE Anne Freeman's insight:
Education

Prospective engineering technicians should take as many high school science and math courses as possible to prepare for programs in engineering technology after high school.

 

Environmental engineering technicians typically have an associate’s degree in environmental engineering technology or engineering technology. Vocational–technical schools include postsecondary public institutions that serve local students and emphasize training needed by local employers. Community colleges offer programs similar to those in technical institutes but include more theory-based and liberal arts coursework. Associate’s degree programs generally include courses in mathematics, chemistry, solid and hazardous waste, and environmental biology, among others.

 

Programs are accredited by ABET (formerly the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). Some environmental engineering technicians enter the occupation with a bachelor’s degree in the natural sciences, such as biology and chemistry.

 

Environmental engineering technicians usually begin work as trainees in entry-level positions supervised by an environmental engineer or a more experienced technician. As they gain experience, technicians take on more responsibility and carry out assignments under general supervision. Some eventually become supervisors.

Technicians who have a bachelor’s degree often are able to advance to engineering positions.

OCTE Anne Freeman's insight:

Listed on O*NET as credentialing orgranization.

 

NICET defines engineering technicians as the "hands-on" members of the engineering team who work under the direction of engineers, scientists, and technologists. They have knowledge of the components, operating characteristics, and limitations of engineering systems and processes particular to their area of specialization.
