Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) protect the quality of our air, water and food in BC and across Canada. Salary ranges are $51,000 to $74,000 in BC.
The BCIT Environmental Health program is a two-year program that allows you to earn a Bachelor of Technology in Environmental Health. Once you complete our program you will be eligible to sit a national certification exam. Upon certification, you’ll work to protect the public from health risks in important areas such as food safety, drinking water protection, air quality, pest control, noise control, housing and sanitation, land use and recreational water quality (swimming pools and beaches).
