This recycling certification program is intended for municipal, county, or private sector employees who have significant experience in the fields of recycling and/or solid waste, or those who have completed another professional certification program, such as those offered for health officers, public works managers, or business administrators. The topics and schedule have been designed to present key information that individuals will need to know to fulfill the duties of a Certified Recycling Professional (CRP).
Upon completion of the four classes (which are scheduled one day per week for four consecutive weeks), attendees who wish to complete the program and receive certification will be required to sit for and pass a written exam based on the content of the program presented.

Registrants are required to complete the program within a single offering. Cross-registration between offerings will be considered only under outstanding circumstances.
