These standards now serve as the basis for a national certification process, administered by the professional Certification Approvals Board (CECAB), that grants the Canadian Certified Environmental Practitioner (CCEP) to qualified applicants.
The CCEP provides practitioners with national recognition of their competence to perform environmental work, improving their ability to relocate and greatly facilitating their access to challenging employment opportunities and career advancement prospects.
Developed by CECAB, the CCEP certification program provides a way to formally recognize Canadian environment practioners' skills and knowledge that are specific to the industry.
Practitioners who successfully complete CECAB's certification process, which consists of an online competency assessment, peer evaluation, and board review, will be granted the CCEP credential.
Peter Borgmann, B.Sc., A.Sc.T., CCEP, and an environmental co-ordinator for the Coast Mountain Bus Company Ltd, found the certification process straightforward.
