Professional Registration

What is Professional Registration?

Having a professional registration from an organisation with a Royal Charter demonstrates that an individual possesses and maintains the knowledge, skills and commitment required by their profession.  Professional registration is widely recognised as a mark to be trusted and carries a strong reputation for quality around the world. Professional standards are monitored and remain up to date through continuing professional development. There is also a robust disciplinary process in place should something go wrong.

Having chartered status means that you are at the pinnacle of your profession. When you work with a chartered professional you can expect them to meet the highest possible standards for their profession. Being a registered technician recognises your status as a professional within your field.

Professional registration with the Society for the Environment provides you with an independent peer recognition of your successful and continued achievement of the exacting standards required to call yourself a registered environmental professional. 

Only individuals on the Society's registers are able to call themselves registered environmental professionals; Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and Registered Environmental Technician (REnvTech).


Benefits of Professional Registration

  • Public recognition of your knowledge, competence and professionalism
  • Broadens your perspective by working with a network of peers across a broad range of sectors
  • Demonstrates your commitment to environmental best practice and remaining current through continued professional development
  • Demonstrates your commitment to work to professional standards.


What Level of Professional Registration is Right For Me?

Chartered Environmentalists are qualified to a Masters Level or can demonstrate their ability to work at this level and typically have a minimum of four years’ relevant work experience.

Registered Environmental Technicians must have a level of knowledge, understanding and skills equivalent to at least QCF Level 3 and normally have a minimum of two years’ relevant work experience.
