Important Update for California REHS

  • Beginning January 1, 2019, the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) will no longer provide Certificates of Attendance (COA) for Continuing Education (CE.)
  • COAs will be provided for CEs earned through December 31, 2018 using the existing request form
  • CEs earned on or after January 1, 2019 will not require COAs and requests will not be processed. Instead, a Certificate of Completion will fulfill the CA REHS requirement for audit purposes. Please retain all Certificates of Completion for your records.
