Registered Environmental Practitioner




Registered Environmental Practitioner (REnvP) is a professional registration recognising the competence, skills and commitment to protect and enhance the environment. Becoming a REnvP demonstrates that you have been judged by your peers to be working at a professional standard, consistently implementing, developing and advocating good environmental practices.

The Arboricultural Association is authorised by the Society for the Environment to offer Registered Environmental Practitioner status to its Fellow and Professional members.

REnvP registration sets Environmental Practitioners apart from others working in their field. It establishes proven knowledge, experience and commitment to professional standards, and enhances career prospects. REnvP may be sought as a stand-alone accreditation or as a clear pathway to Chartered Environmentalist status.
