Learning Testimonials:

“I think the courses are wonderful, and since I’ve started taking them I was actually asked to interview for an Environmental Scientific Technologist position out at Lawrence Livermore Nat’l Labs. They were very impressed by my EPHOC coursework and if I get the position it will probably be because of my participation in the program.” – Jay Tapper-McKelvey

“I just wanted to say thank you for operating and updating this website! I recently passed the REHS/RS exam and your website was extremely helpful in my preparation. In fact your website was 1 of the only 2 resources I used. I did not need to purchase a study guide or the 3 book Environmental Engineering series saving me lots of $!” – Samuel Flatland, R.S ., Environmental Health Specialist Training
