Certified Professional

Through the Voluntary Action Program (VAP), businesses and property owners have a way to investigate possible environmental contamination due to hazardous substances, clean up the property, and receive a covenant not to sue (CNS) from the State of Ohio promising that no more cleanup is needed. VAP maximizes resources and expertise in the private sector by using qualified, experienced professionals such as engineers and scientists certified by Ohio EPA as certified professionals (CP).

Certified Professional Training


NOTE: Changes to Ohio Administrative Code 3745-300-05, effective April 19, 2006, will require any individual who wishes to apply for certification as a Certified Professional to take Ohio EPA's initial/refresher training as a prerequisite prior to submitting the initial application.

Certified Professional Development Hour Units (PDHUs)

To renew certification, a certified professional must demonstrate completion of a minimum of twelve professional development hour units (PDHUs), as set forth in paragraphs (C)(7) through (C)(11) of rule 3745-300-05, of relevant continuing education during the previous certification year. Certified Professionals are encouraged to attend CP Coffees (3-4 hour training sessions held 2-3 times a year), the VAP Annual Certified Professional Training Session in the fall of each year (typically a full-day session), and/or the Ohio Brownfield Conference presentations that are pre-approved for PDHUs. In addition, technical courses covering issues such ground water sampling and soil classification, are offered on a periodic basis. Current courses being offered can always be found under “Upcoming Outreach and Training Sessions”, and it will be noted if the courses qualify for PDHUs or not. In addition, there are several technical webinars, seminars and conferences related to investigation and remediation techniques that DERR/SABR staff approve on a regular basis for PDHUs. For the latest version of pre-approved courses, see below. If you have any questions regarding whether a course you plan to take will qualify for PDHUs, or if you have questions about documentation for PDHUs for purposes of your renewal application, please feel free to contact a SABR Certified Professional Coordinator at 615-644-2924.
