- I was a REHS, but I have not renewed in the last few years. What do I need to do to become an REHS again?
NCREHS response: If it has been more than 2 years since your last registration date, you will have to apply again as an intern. If you took the exam after 1982 thru the board, or, if you took the same exam the board was offering at that time, you do not have to repeat the exam. But you do have to have 30 hrs of physical or biological sciences (changed from 15 in early 1990’s. And, you have to repeat the SOP law course within 4 years.
So, if you meet the 30 hours, and have taken an acceptable exam, you may ask for your experience to be applied to your new registration. This particular process is called “fast tracking.”
All this only applies if you are employed in the public sector in a job that requires registration.
