17 EA Education Programs 5.4 Ministry of Environment : EA Professional Engineer The Ministry of Environment is planning on establishing the Environmental assessment certificate system in 2011 or The test will include 5 topics: - Environmental policy - Environmental planning - EIA regulations - EIA legislation - EIA practice. Environmental Planning & Assessment Centre, Yonsei University

18 6. Summery Environmental Planning & Assessment Centre, Yonsei University In Korea, EA includes EIA and PER but will be integrated into SEA soon. As social interest on EA increases, demand for EA educational program increases in the 1990s as well. The EA education is provided in various institutions in different ways If the Environmental Impact Assessor regulation establishes, level of education for EIA will be enhanced. However, there are no studies that address the current EA education system. EA education is not considered important and there is lack of experienced professionals. Therefore, there is a need to conduct a systemized survey to analyze the current system and promote a sound EA master program. As well, in order to increase the quality of the education, international collaboration and researches are necessary.
