Endangered resources certification training

Endangered resources (ER) certification training provides non-DNR individuals with comprehensive training on how to write a proposed ER Review Letter. Certified reviewers are authorized to conduct their own ER Reviews that have sign-off from the DNR. For more information, please see the frequently asked questions.

Our current list of certified reviewers [PDF] come from a wide range of backgrounds including private consultants, utilities, government and more.

2018 Training dates

All trainings will be held at the DNR Science Operations Center located at 2801 Progress Road in Madison.

  • March 1, 2018

  1. Read the program guidelines [PDF] carefully to fully understand the procedures, objectives and standards of the certification program.
  2. Fill out the certification application [PDF] to attend a training. We encourage you to come to the training even if you’re not sure about becoming fully certified – see if it would be a good fit. The training is covered by the $140 application fee.
  3. Email your application to Angela White or mail it to: DNR, NHC/6, Attn: Angela White, PO Box 7921, Madison WI 53707-7921.

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.
