Note: The next LSRP Exam is planned for March 2022. The exact date of the exam and whether it will be in-person or remotely-proctored will be announced via the DEP SRWMP listserv and will also be posted here.
1.) Apply for the LSRP License
The Site Remediation Professional License is the state license conferred upon site remediation professionals that have demonstrated education and experience sufficient to qualify them to independently conduct site remediations and issue response action outcomes in compliance with applicable New Jersey statutes and regulations.
To become a New Jersey Licensed Site Remediation Professional ("LSRP"), an individual must submit an application
that demonstrates that he or she meets all of the eligibility requirements. Persons interested in applying to
become a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) may obtain the State of New Jersey Licensed Site Remediation
Professional Licensure Application Form and the State of New Jersey Licensed Site Remediation Professional Licensure
Application Form Instructions from the Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board website at
Application Form and Instructions.
The Application Form Instructions should be read in their entirety prior to completing the Application Form. Most questions will be answered by the Application Form Instructions. Additional questions that applicants may have are addressed in FAQs.
If you have specific questions that are not addressed in the Application Form Instructions or the FAQs, please direct them to the Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board Executive Director Janine MacGregor at 609-984-3424 or SRPLBoardContact@dep.nj.gov
Applicants are required to have three reference forms submitted on their behalf. The reference forms must be from three persons with personal knowledge of the applicant's training, experience and professional conduct, including at least one LSRP, at least one current or past employer of the applicant from any state, and a third person of the applicant's choosing. Access the Reference form here.
An individual whose application is approved by the Board must then take and obtain a passing score on the LSRP examination. The Board is currently administering the LSRP examination approximately once every 18 months.
When the Board approves an application, the Board will notify the applicant that he or she is a candidate for the LSRP examination. The notification will include information concerning registration for the next scheduled LSRP examination.
The notification will also include an LSRP Examination Candidate Agreement, which will include the rules concerning the examination. No person will be permitted to take the examination unless he or she signs a statement certifying that he or she has read the LSRP Examination Candidate Agreement and agrees to abide by its terms. A copy of the LSRP Examination Candidate Agreement, along with information about the format and content of the LSRP examination, can be found in the Candidate Bulletin. An updated Candidate Bulletin was recently posted and is dated March 2020.
2.) Renew your LSRP License
LSRP License Holders:
Every LSRP is required to renew his or her license every three years by submitting a completed application form and renewal fee to the Board no more than 120 days, and no less than 90 days, prior to his or her license expiration date. This means that all requirements must be met, all Continuing Education Credits must be earned, and the renewal application and all supporting documentation are due 90 days before the license expiration date. The Board will send renewal instructions to LSRPs via email approximately two weeks before each LSRP's renewal period begins.
Be advised that LSRPs are required to complete 36 continuing education credits each three-year license term in order to qualify for license renewal. For further information on continuing education requirements refer to www.nj.gov/lsrpboard/board/education/.
3.) Inactivate your LSRP License
An LSRP that is not working in the field of site remediation in any capacity may choose to inactivate his or her license for a period of time, up to the license expiration date. Any LSRP that does not have an active license during the entirety of a calendar year is excused from payment of the annual licensing fee for that calendar year. An LSRP may inactivate his or her license by submitting the Inactivation of License Form to the Board.
