2012 board certification available for environmental engineers.

Engineers working in wastewater management and other environmental public health fields are invited to become board certified this year.

The American Academy of Environmental Engineers, based in Annapolis, Md., provides engineers the ability to earn certification through the organization. The academy offers two certifications: board-certified environmental engineer, BCEE, for those who have a professional engineering license; or board-certified environmental engineering member, BCEEM, for those who are non-licensed. In December, the academy announced it would also begin offering a certification for board-certified environmental scientists.

Specialty certifications are available in air pollution control, general environmental engineering, hazardous waste management, industrial hygiene, radiation protection, solid waste management and waste supply, environmental sustainability and wastewater engineering.

Environmental engineers who have earned their certification through the academy are listed in "Who's Who in Environmental Engineering" and receive a subscription to Environmental Engineer, the academy's quarterly publication.

The deadline for registering for this year's round of certification through the American Academy of Environmental Engineers is March 31. Applications for the new certification category are expected to be accepted sometime after that date.

In keeping with the new certification category, the academy also announced in December that it will change its name in the near future to the American Academy of Environmental Engineers and Scientists.
