The Rutgers Environmental and Public Health Summer Career Prep Course (June 3 - July 19, 2013)

The Rutgers EPH Program is a 7-week course followed by a 200 hour field training internship that provides the expertise and hands-on experience you need to prepare for the NJ Registered Environmental Health Specialist (REHS) state licensing exam. Students who successfully complete the program (class + internship), are eligible to sit for the state REHS licensing exam (REHS = Registered Environmental Health Specialist). Because the REHS license is required for health inspector positions at local and county health departments and is a credential used in the private sector where inspections / sampling / monitoring of food, air, water or soil is necessary (eg. non-profit environmental groups, environmental consulting firms, grocery stores), it is plain to see how Rutgers’ EPH program can help you advance your career!!
