The Joint Committee for the Credentialing of Sanitarians (JCCS) Inc. is the organization that executes a voluntary registration program for Registered Sanitarians/Registered Environmental Health Specialists (RS/REHS) in the State of Kansas. Currently, the only examination/testing available to new candidates for registration are the exams and tests provided through the National Environmental Health Association (NEHA). See their website for requirements at

Those Sanitarians (and Environmental Specialists) currently registered with JCCS, can track their continued education credits units/hours (CEU) with JCCS. Newer Sanitarians (for Environmental Specialist) that have recently passed a professional examination, can also apply to JCCS for memebership and tracking of their CEUs. Sanitarians or Environmental Specialists registered with other state organization outside of Kansas, may apply to JCCS for reciprocal registration and be accepted after examination of their experience and training.
