Environment & Public Health - About the REHS License


The REHS license is a required credential for health inspectors who work in New Jersey's local and county health departments. Many private sector organizations (e.g. non-profit environmental groups, environmental consulting firms, and grocery stores) also require or recommend the REHS license for anyone conducting quality assurance inspections, environmental sampling, and monitoring and assessment of food, air, water, or soil.

To earn the NJ REHS license and become an REHS, you must:

  1. Qualify to take the REHS licensing exam,
  2. Apply for the exam,
  3. Take the exam and pass with a score of at least 70%.
