Testing Times and Procedures
All new applicants for In-Training or Full Registration must apply for and successfully complete the Sanitarian and Environmental Specialist Examination. (Applicants approved for reciprocal registration are exempt from this requirement.)
Testing slots are extremely limited; therefore, do not come to the exam if you have not received an approval letter from our office. If you have not received an approval letter, you are not on the schedule to exam.
Exam times are scheduled individually on a first-come, first-serve basis and will typically be in the 2-3 business days immediately prior to the next scheduled Council meeting.
If the next scheduled Council meeting is in two (2) weeks or less and you have submitted your application but not received your scheduling confirmation, please contact our office immediately.
No other items are required for the exam. Please note the following:
The exam is given on computer and will be scored upon completion. The exam is 97 questions and requires a minimum passing score of 60%. Applicants are allowed 90 minutes to exam. Applicants are permitted to leave the exam room for brief bathroom or water breaks.
Upon completion of the exam, the examinee must flag down the OSDH testing staff to submit their examination for scoring. Failure to observe this instruction may render your exam score irretrievable, resulting in a required retest.
All examinees will receive a hard copy of their exam score. Those scoring below 60% will receive a retest form and be released. Those scoring 60% or above will be given the option of returning the day of the Council meeting to interview with the Council; however, this is not required. Proper dress code is encouraged for Council meetings.
All successful examinees' wallet cards and/or certificates will be mailed in 1-2 business days following the Council meeting.
The following minimum wait periods apply before applicants are permitted to retest:
