Announcing a New Certification Program for Ecological Restoration Practitioners!


SER is excited to announce the Certified Ecological Restoration Practitioner Program (CERP)! This program will certify qualified ecological restoration practitioners (and practitioners-in-training). Certification will be based on a combination of:

  • Knowledge base (there will be a grandfathering clause during the first 5-year cycle)
  • Professional-level experience
  • References
  • Review and agreement with SER’s ethics and disciplinary policies
  • Successful completion of SER e-learning course (estimated at ~90 minutes) on the foundations of ecological restoration
