Sanitarian Exam Dates

Testing Procedures

All new applicants for In-Training or Full Registration must apply for and  successfully complete the Sanitarian and Environmental Specialist Examination.  (Applicants approved for reciprocal Registration are exempt from this requirement)

Exams are no longer held at the Oklahoma State Department of Health. Exams are now administered through CareerTech.

In order to take the examination, an applicant must complete an application and mail in or drop off the application along with the required documents listed on the application.  Once the application and appropriate payment have been received by this office, the application will be reviewed, and if the applicant has met all of the requirements a letter will be issued to the applicant that will give instructions on how to schedule the examination at a CareerTech location.

The minimum passing score is 60%. 

The following minimum wait periods apply before applicants are permitted to retest:

·         First failure:  30-day waiting period

·         Subsequent failures:  90-day waiting period

Once an applicant has achieved a passing score, their application will be reviewed by the Sanitarian/Environmental Specialist Council during the next scheduled meeting
