Mission Statement

To protect the public welfare by establishing and maintaining a high standard of integrity and dignity in the profession of Sanitarian.


Continuing Education Unit Requirements

All Registered Sanitarians are required biennially to complete a continuing education program in subjects relating to practices of the profession. A minimum of 2 CEUs (continuing education units) are required every two years. One CEU is equal to 10 contact hours, actual class or training hours. A new registered Sanitarian will be required to complete a prorated number of the biennial requirements of contact hours based on the date of registration. 

If a Registered Sanitarian obtains 3 or more CEUs during a biennium, one CEU may be carried over to the next biennium to meet CEU requirements.

Credit and non-credit college courses offered by an accredited educational institution, attendance at annual conferences, short training courses, workshops, seminars, and courses offered by governmental agencies or industry are all examples of possible CEU opportunities. 

The Board will review all CEU submittals to determine if they are related to the functions of a Sanitarian. Sanitarians will be notified periodically on the number of CEUs they have accumulated for the current biennium.
