Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Continuing Education FAQ's - Since NEHA receives many phone calls with questions about continuing education and credential renewals, we have put together this list of commonly asked questions and answers to make this process easier for you.

Attention California Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS)

NEHA has been designated a continuing education accreditation agency for registered environmental health specialists by the California Department of Public Health. Contact hours earned through attendance at the NEHA AEC and through NEHA pre-approved courses only will count toward completion of the continuing education requirement for the CA REHSs. However, NEHA e-learning courses will NO longer be pre-approved for CA REHS CEs. Click here for information on pre-approved courses.

E-learning courses:
While e-learning courses are no longer pre-approved, courses may still be approved for CA. To receive CE’s from e-learning for CA fill out the “Certificate of Attendance Request Form” and include the $30 fee. After your request has been reviewed and verified, a certificate of attendance will be sent to you. In addition, if you are a NEHA member the fee may be waived.

If you have questions about pre-approved courses please call (303) 756-9090 ext. 310 or

NEHA Book Reviews|

NEHA now grants continuing education credit for self-study learning experiences such as the preparation of an acceptable book review for books obtained through NEHA. (It is important to note that only books obtained through NEHA are deemed acceptable for CE book reviews. This is because NEHA has already spent a considerable amount of time carefully reviewing and evaluating the content of these books and has determined that they meet continuing education standards.) Visit the NEHA Bookstore. By reviewing a NEHA book, you can obtain a maximum of 4 contact hours of credit toward your two-year NEHA requirement. A written book review must be completed for each book including: a summary of the major topics or points covered by the book (one page or less); an assessment as to whether or not the author successfully achieved what he or she set out to do (one page or less); a personal critical assessment of the book including likes and dislikes (two or more pages); and a concluding summary that simply states your perception of the value of the book (one page or less). 

Please note: 1 CEU equals 10 CE contact hours; 0.5 CEU equals 5 CE contact hours.
