Centralized Intern Training and Authorization

Welcome to the Environmental Health Section Centralized Intern Training and Authorization, which is located within the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Public Health. Centralized Intern Training and Authorization (CIT & Authorization) is comprised of two programs, Centralized Intern Training and Administration for Delegation of Authority.

Pursuant to N.C. General Statute 130A-4(b) and as codified in rules 15A NCAC 01O.010, CIT & Authorization provides education and training in order to authorize agents of the state to enforce sanitation laws and rules.

The CIT & Authorization mission is to promote and protect public health by:

  • Managing Centralized Intern Training for new agents of the state to become authorized to enforce state sanitation laws and rules.
  • Educating and evaluating specialists to ensure that established competency standards are met before they are delegated authority to enforce North Carolina Environmental Health related rules as Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHS).
  • Providing cross-training for the REHS.
  • Coordinating and providing continuing education efforts for state and local employees in the field of environmental health.
