COVID-19 Resources for CEHA Members 


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing, shelter-in-place orders, and the cancellation of local conferences, meetings, and events, environmental health professionals are finding it increasingly difficult to obtain access to continuing education and training.

In response to this need, NEHA is offering free access to online trainings to all environmental health professionals regardless of membership status starting on March 30, 2020.

The online trainings include our webinars, partner courses, and E-Learning videos of sessions from the 2017–2019 AECs. By watching these webinars, courses, and videos, environmental health professionals can earn continuing education contact hours toward their NEHA credentials.

At this time, open access will be available for 90 days and will end on June 30, 2020.

We also have created a COVID-19 resources page for environmental health professionals. Be sure to visit the page frequently for the latest developments and resources.
