Why Board Certification?
Today's complex engineering projects demand more than just a general knowledge of engineering practice - they require the special expertise that is gained only through years of experience.
If you are a licensed engineer with at least eight years of full-time environmental engineering experience, the next logical step in your career development is to be board-certified in your specialty and to become a Board Certified Environmental Engineer (BCEE).
If you are an environmental scientist with at least eight years of full-time environmental science experience, the next logical step in your career development is to be board-certified in your specialty and to become a Board Certified Environmental Scientist (BCES).
The BCEE, BCEEM*, and BCES titles are internationally recognized as premium credentials that are awarded to experienced professionals who have demonstrated expertise in one or more areas of specialization.
*Environmental engineers without a P.E. License (BCEEM) may be certified through Eminence.
Some of the benefits of becoming Board Certified include:
- Objective testimony to your special expertise and level of proficiency beyond that which is required to practice as a professional engineer (P.E. license not required to become a BCEEM or BCES)
- A biographical listing as Board Certified in Who's Who in Environmental Engineering and Science® - the recognized guide to the current leaders in environmental engineering and environmental science;
- Participation in programs that encourage the hiring of Board Certified individuals through distribution of the Who's Who in Environmental Engineering and Science® and the Environmental Engineering and Science Resource Guidebook
- Complimentary subscription to the Environmental Engineer and Scientist, the quarterly periodical of AAEES that focuses on environmental engineering and environmental science history, professional practice issues, and environmental policy;
- Discounted entry fees for the annual Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science competition, which provides public recognition of quality environmental engineering and environmental science projects and programs; and
- Exciting opportunities to participate in advancing the state-of-the-art of the environmental engineering and science professions through participation in Academy committees.
