Licensed Environmental Remediation Specialist Exam Set
Certification is required for anyone submitting voluntary remediation and brownfields cleanup designs to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) Office of Environmental Remediation (OER) for review.
To qualify for the exam, you must have a bachelor’s degree in an approved scientific field and at least six years of relevant professional experience. You can also qualify with a high school diploma and 10 years of relevant professional experience. In either case, you must have at least one year of supervisory or project management experience.
To take the exam, register online at www.dep.wv.gov. Under the Office of Environmental Remediation, go to the licensed remediation specialist online application and follow the instructions. Fees of $300 for the application and $250 for the examination are required. Online applications must be received by Sept. 3.
Only approved candidates with picture identification cards will be admitted to the testing site. Photo identification and the $250 testing fee must be presented before the exam starts.
For more information about the exam, contact Jamie Wolfe, a manager with Marshall University’s Center for Environmental, Geotechnical, and Applied Sciences (CEGAS), by calling 304-696-6042 or emailing email@example.com. CEGAS administers the licensing exam for OER.
The West Virginia Legislature enacted the voluntary remediation and brownfields law during the 1996 legislative session. Voluntary remediation involves a responsible party cleaning up a site for future development. Brownfields cleanups are handled by a third party.
