Event Description

Have you ever thought about Board Certification but aren’t sure where to start? Or perhaps you’ve taken a look and are worried about studying for the written exam?  Or maybe you’re not sure if your work history is sufficient to make you eligible? Let us help to remove some of the (unneeded) mystery from the process of Board Certification!

Join us for this interactive meeting to sit down with our Executive Director, Professor Daniel B. Oerther, PhD, PE, BCEE, BCES so you can learn all about becoming Board Certified with the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists!

As part of an overview presentation, you will learn what it takes to become eligible for Board Certification (i.e., an appropriate degree and 8 years of experience, including 4 years in responsible charge), how to get started with the application process (i.e., apply for Membership first, and then we’ll coach you through the Board Certification process), and, most importantly, how becoming Board Certified can benefit your career (i.e., more money, more responsibility, and greater professional satisfaction)! You’ll even get study tips for the written and oral exams!!

Following the overview, and as part of an interactive session, you’ll be able to get answers to your individual questions. Nothing is out of bounds as Dan is available to listen, help answer what he can, and make sure we direct you to the right person to get you the definitive answers you need.

If you are in the early or mid-stages of your environmental engineering or science career, you won’t want to miss this informative meeting that will help you get started on your journey to Board Certification.
