Become Certified 2

Site Contamination Practitioners Australia (SCP Australia) aims to provide improved outcomes for all stakeholders involved in the contaminated land industry by ensuring, through a recognised certification process, that those dealing with contaminated site issues have the necessary level of knowledge, expertise and skill. It will also provide appropriate and specific recognition for the profession, for the expertise of practitioners working in a complex environment, and for the profession’s contribution to society.

SCP Australia will seek to satisfy the following objectives:

  • Establish a framework for promoting best practice standards for service excellence
  • Establish a nationally consistent professional standard
  • Promote the establishment and use of training resources to support practitioner development

A National Executive Committee (NEC) oversees the governance and operations of SCP Australia, along with the introduction and management of the certification scheme.

SCP Australia operates with a not-for-profit objective.

Through arrangements put in place, the Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) will provide crucial backing to SCP Australia to establish it as a national, independent and respected initiative with broad sector support.
