CHANGES to NEHA proctoring requirements: The Mo Board of Certification can proctor the NEHA/REHS exam if there are at least 3 candidates available to sit for the exam. However there is a fee of $350 for 3-10 candidates. Please contact NEHA for testing sites close to your location as this is the most economical option at this time. If anyone is interested in forming a study group for the NEHA exam we can help facilitate. If we have 11 or more candidates sitting for the exam the fee is waived.
