Workshop Summary

In this 1.5 hour workshop, join SER staff to learn about what the requirements are for becoming a Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner (CERP) or CERP-in-Training (CERPIT), see the application steps, and answer questions about your own application. The majority of this workshop will be dedicated to individual work on your application, with SER staff available to support you, answer questions, provide guidance and feedback, or help you troubleshoot any technical challenges. Ecological restoration practitioners who are still deciding whether CERP makes sense for them, or those who have begun an application but have specific questions, are also encouraged to attend.

SER’s Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner (CERP) program encourages a high professional standard for those who are designing, implementing, overseeing, and monitoring ecological restoration projects throughout the world. The program guarantees that practitioners meet a set of minimum requirements for restoration and ecological knowledge, on-the-ground practical experience, and an understanding of restoration principles and standards. The CERP program also offers a CERP-In-Training certification for those who don’t quite meet all of the requirements of a full CERP certification, and is ideal for new graduates of restoration programs and professionals who are newer to the field of ecological restoration.
