INVITATION TO THEMATIC MANDATORY CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMME FOR REGISTERED ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH OFFICERS IN NIGERIA: APPLICATION OF HEALTH SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT IN MODERN ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH PRACTICE

The Council has organised series of Modules 1 & 2 of the Mandatory Continuing Education Programme (MCEP) for Registered Environmental Health Officers across the Country. In consideration of modern day realities, it has become imperative for the Council to upgrade the Programme with a view to addressing thematic Environmental Health Areas to enable EHOs have mastery in such areas. The Thematic Programme is intended to usher in a new era in which license renewal is based on a credit earning system where EHOs are expected to earn from various Council recognised Training Programmes, a minimum of 75 credit points to be eligible for renewal of license.

The next in the series of training is with the theme “Application of HSE in Modern Environmental Health Practice” for which EHOs who have participated in the MCEP Modules 1 and 2 are entitled to attend, but on presenting evidence of participation in both modules. The Programme will hold as follows:
