How much does it cost?
Application ($140) + Exam 1 ($360) + Exam 2 ($460) = Total: $960 ($180 every two years to maintain your certification status).
In addition to the certification fees, a company should also take into consideration the cost of an annual data-sharing agreement, which is needed to obtain Natural Heritage Inventory information and write proposed ER Reviews.
