Professional examinations

The examinations comprise of:

  • Written Examination 
  • Professional Interview 

A substantial Written Examination

The written exam is open book format and intervention based, covering at least two different environmental health intervention groups, i.e. Food, Health and Safety, Environmental Protection, Housing and Public Health. The exam is in two parts:

Part 1 - This is the reading and preparation phase. This is the time for you to study the case file and any other appropriate materials and to make any notes that you feel will assist you in the afternoon session of the exam.

Part 2 - This is the actual examination phase. At the start of this phase you will be provided with the tasks you will be required to complete.


Professional Interview

The interview will be based on a fictitious scenario where you will be cast in a role as a newly qualified environmental health professional. This need not necessarily be in the role of a local authority officer. It may be as a consultant, or as an advisor to a large commercial chain, or as someone working for the NHS etc.
