Licensed Environmental Professional Program

On June 8th, 2023, the LEP Board discontinued its waiver of the regulatory limitation on the number of credits a Licensed Environmental Professional (LEP) may receive from approved distance learning, on-demand*, courses for the biennial period from July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2025. The number of credits allowed from approved distance learning, on-demand, course is twelve credits.

*Distance learning is considered by the LEP Board to be an on-demand version, not a live experience.  On-demand courses need to be approved by the LEP Board as distance learning courses, which, in addition to other requirements, are required to include an assessment of learning at their conclusion on which the LEP needs to score at least 70%.

In specific circumstances, an environmental professional licensed pursuant to CGS section 22a-133v may "verify" that an investigation has been performed at a specific property in accordance with prevailing standards and guidelines, and that pollution on such property has been remediated in accordance with the Remediation Standard Regulations (RSRs). The Commissioner may conduct an audit of any action authorized by law to be performed by an LEP pursuant to CGS section 22a-133v(g). The LEP Verification Audit Program has been established to ensure that LEP verifications are based on an appropriate understanding of the environmental conditions of the site and that the verification is in compliance with all applicable statutes and regulations, including the RSRs. To obtain information about an LEP's verification record, contact Claire Quinn, Audit Program Coordinator, Remediation Division, DEEP. For additional information, please contact Elizabeth McAuliffe, LEP Program Coordinator, DEEP at or (860) 424-3458.
