Registered Environmental Health Specialist

The UCLA Department of Environmental Health Sciences has an articulation agreement with the California Department of Public Health which allows EHS MPH graduates to sit for the Registered Environmental Health Specialist (REHS) exam after graduation. A person certified in REHS works to improve the quality of life and health through environmental education, consultation, and enforcement. Although a majority of those who are REHS-certified work for government, many are also employed by the private sector.
