The certification window is now open for both the Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner (CERP) and Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner-in-Training (CERPIT) applications through October 16, 2020. You can find out more information about the program and apply at


CERP is for practitioners, researchers, government agency workers and others engaged in the practice of restoration with at least 5 years of restoration work experience. CERPIT  is for restorations with less than 5 years’ experience but who meet the CERP educational requirements which are a combination of biological, ecological, quantitative and physical science coursework in addition to two restoration classes. Some work experience and/or alternative ways of acquiring knowledge may substitute for course work in some situations.


The CERP program began in 2017 and is approaching 500 practitioners. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Chris Lenhart at
