Registered Environmental Health Specialist/Registered Sanitarian Online Credential Exam Review Course
NEHA’s new 14-module online refresher course is designed to help candidates prepare for the NEHA Registered Environmental Health/Registered Sanitarian (REHS/RS) credential exam. Course participants will be able to complete the review materials at their own pace, take knowledge assessments, and review participant/instructor discussion groups in each of the topic areas. Late registrants (those that register after April 1st) can access the course’s online discussion groups, but will not be able to participate.
The online course includes a four-hour classroom session with the course instructor (available to all course participants), which will be held during the NEHA Annual Education Conference (AEC) in Grand Rapids, Michigan on July 13 from 8 a.m.–12 p.m. The exam will be given that afternoon at the conference hotel.
Participants in this online class are expected to have sufficient knowledge in each of the exam’s 14 areas, and should meet the eligibility requirements to sit for the REHS/RS credential exam. This course alone is not enough to pass the credential exam. The online class will cover exam content areas as described in the job task analysis for this credential. The Candidate Information Brochure for the REHS credential contains an exam description and content outline for interested candidates: http://neha.org/sites/default/files/REHS-Brochure.pdf
