Those who qualify for the exam have a bachelor's degree in an approved scientific field and at least six years of relevant professional experience. They can also qualify with a high school diploma and 10 years of relevant professional experience. In either case, they must have at least one year of supervisory or project management experience.

To take the exam, register online at www.dep.wv.gov. Under the Office of Environmental Remediation, go to the licensed remediation specialist online application and follow the instructions.

Fees of $300 for the application and $250 for the examination are required. Online applications must be received by March 13, 2013.

Only approved candidates with picture identification cards will be admitted to the testing site. Photo identification and the $250 testing fee must be presented before the exam starts.

The exam will take place from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on March 27, 2013 at Marshall University Graduate College's South Charleston Campus, in room 205 of the Robert C. Byrd Academic Center Building at 100 Angus E. Peyton Drive.

The legislature enacted the voluntary remediation and brownfields law during the 1996 legislative session. Voluntary remediation involves a responsible party cleaning up a site for future development, and brownfields involves clean up by a third party.
