Environment & Public Health: REHS Licensing Exam Retesting Policy
If you don't pass the REHS Licensing Exam on your first attempt,
- you'll receive your exam grade and your score within each subject area of the exam; and
- you may take the exam again without reapplying by informing the Public Health Licensing and Examination Board [by mail or email] that you wish to take the exam again no later than the application deadline for the exam you wish to take [upcoming dates are listed at http://www.nj.gov/health/lh/phpl.shtml].
You will be notified of your acceptance a few weeks before the exam date, and you will have to submit another $100 examination fee to sit for the exam.
If you don't pass the exam after a second attempt,
- you'll receive a list of the subject areas in which you scored the lowest; and
- you will not be allowed to take the exam again until you have completed additional training in the identified subject areas*.
Once you successfully complete the required additional training, you may reapply to take the exam. You'll have to complete the application process again [see Applying for the REHS Licensing Exam] and submit proof of your additional training. If your reapplication is approved, you will be eligible to sit for the next available licensing exam.
