Obtaining Credit Hours from NEHA

The National Environmental Health Association has pre-approved the Training Center’s Essentials for Healthy Homes Practitioner course for 15.0 contact hours for continuing education credit.

Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS) or Registered Sanitarians (RS) credentialed through NEHA can receive credit for participating in the course. In addition, many states licensed sanitarians and environmental health specialists and recognize the NEHA pre-approval. This recognition simplifies the process to get hours approved.

  • The course binder will include a copy of NEHA’s Continuing Education Attendance Form for the course
  • Individuals pursuing credit must complete the Steps 1, 2, and 3 of the form.
  • Individuals must secure the signature of the course instructor in Step 4 so the instructor can verify attendance.
  • Individuals submit the form to NEHA on their own. If they do not hold a NEHA credential, they will be required to pay a $7.50 computer maintenance fee.
