What is an LSRP?
An LSRP, or licensed site remediation professional, is an environmental professional tasked with protecting the environment and public health and safety. LSRPs are responsible for overseeing environmental investigations and cleanups, and day-to-day management of these cleanups.
The LSRP program was created in New Jersey in 2009 within the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) to increase the pace of remediation, mitigate the threat of contamination to public health and safety and the environment, and revitalize underutilized properties for productive use. The SRRA was fully implemented in 2012.
How Can I Become an LSRP?
To become a licensed site remediation professional, you must submit an application that demonstrates that you meet all eligibility requirements. If your application is approved by the Board, then you must take a rigorous licensing examination and achieve a passing score.
Prospective LSRPs must also have at least eight years of full-time professional experience in site remediation. Of these eight years, at least five must have occurred in New Jersey prior to the LSRP application.

Clarifying Educational Training and Requirements for LSRPs
Another requirement for becoming an LSRP in New Jersey includes educational training before and after becoming licensed. This includes completing the minimum health and safety education and training requirements (in accordance with 29 CFR Section 1910.120) no more than one year prior to applying.
In addition, to maintain their license, an LSRP must complete 36 continuing education credits during each three-year license renewal term. At least one class must be an ethics course concentrating on the unique challenges of the LSRP profession.
In 2020, Vision Environmental announced the NJ Site Remediation Board’s (NJSRP) approval of our class “Proper Waste Classification for LSRPs” for continuing education credits, specifically one hour Regulatory CEC for LSRPs. Explore the full course description here.
