Learning portfolios

If you wish to gain the Certificate of Registration from the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB) you will need to complete a Learning Portfolio and the CIEH Professional Examinations. Please note that this route to qualification will cease in June 2020. Alternatively, you may wish to consider enrolling on our new chartered programme for Registration as a Chartered Environmental Health Practitioner which is being launched in September 2018. There is more information about these changes here. 

  • Portfolio of Professional Practice (PPP) 
  • Experiential Learning Portfolio (ELP) 

The PPP is our most recent portfolio assessment that forms part of the pathway to registration with the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB). It is available to all candidates, including anyone currently undertaking the ELP who wants to switch to the PPP. The portfolio is based upon the concepts of experiential learning and reflective practice and requires candidates to undertake a range of interventions, develop a range of skills and reflect upon their experiences.

The documents on the right provide guidance on the PPP. It is recommended that candidates familiarise themselves with the guidance before embarking on the portfolio. 

There is also a wealth of information and discussion about the PPP in the members forum on MyCIEH, along with details of PPP workshops.

The ELP is the original portfolio that forms part of the pathway to registration with the Environmental Health Registration Board (EHRB), though now many students choose to complete the PPP or hybrid of the two.

Candidates are required to register with the EHRB at least 21 days prior to making an application for any assessment. Download and complete the registration form
