What is it?
The Arboricultural Association is a body licensed by the Society for the Environment. This means that it is licensed to confer the status of Chartered Environmentalist on its Professional and Fellow members who can demonstrate that their practice of arboriculture takes place within the context of appropriate environmental considerations. To find out more about how becoming a CEnv could benefit you please see the SocEnv website.
Who can apply?
If you are a Fellow or Professional member with at least four years relevant experience, a level 7 academic qualification or equivalent expertise and can demonstrate knowledge of, competence in, and engagement with, sustainable management of the environment you can apply to become a Chartered Environmentalist.
How much does it cost?
The initial assessment fees are £400 and are payable in two parts; one part covering the initial assessment and the other covering your interview.
What do I get?
Chartered Environmentalist status is a cross discipline accreditation with cross industry recognition. As environmental concerns and sustainability become more and more important in development, construction and landscape architecture, having the Chartered Environmentalist accreditation really allows you to promote your environmental awareness.
