How to become an Environmental Restoration Planner
Employers typically require environmental restoration planners to have a master's degree.
Licensure (required in New Jersey) and certification may also apply. Some employers will only hire individuals who hold certification. The American Planning Association's American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) offers the Certified Environmental Planner (CEP) designation.
Environmental Planning, Urban Planning, Environmental Science, Environmental Studies, or Geography are common undergraduate degrees. There are universities that now offer master's degree programs specifically in environmental planning. These typically take two years to complete.
