To encourage citizens to obtain certification as environmental education personnel, to deepen environmental education and to have training courses focus on actual needs, the EPA announced an amendment to the Regulations Governing the Certification and Management of Environmental Education Personnel (環境教育人員認證及管理辦法) on 14 April 2022. The amendment reduced the number of hours of required professional training to 40 hours and the total number of training to 100 hours.

Many years of implementation of the Environmental Education Act (環境教育法) and certification of environmental education personnel under the Act have shown that, in practice, 100 hours of training is sufficient to meet requirements for certification. Thus, the EPA has revised Article 9 of the Regulations by adjusting the required hours of training, from at least 120 hours to at least 100 hours, thus making it less burdensome for citizens to obtain an environmental education certification.

In addition, considering the diversity, richness and uniqueness of professional fields from which environmental education personnel could come, relevant provisions of Article 9 paragraphs 4 and 5 were also amended to give the training courses better focus. For those who are already certified as environmental education personnel but would like to obtain certification in another professional field, the number of hours of required professional training was revised from at least 60 to at least 40.
