Environmental Specialist IV is the supervisory/advanced practitioner level in the series. Under direction, incumbents have first-line supervisory duties for a team of scientific, professional and technical staff. Duties include arranging, directing, prioritizing, reviewing, and evaluating the unit’s processes and final products as well as administering line personnel functions.

Some positions have advanced practitioner responsibilities requiring a professional certification or registration designated by law (and described in Special Requirement) and/or have indirect supervisory responsibilities over the final outputs and products rather than direct supervision of staff or processes. These positions require the consistent application of scientific expertise above the advanced journey level.

And: 1. Two years of advanced-journey level professional experience in environmental regulation, analysis, environmental research, conducting a monitoring or surveillance program, and/or providing lead direction for a multi-disciplinary staff performing duties and responsibilities equivalent to the Environmental Specialist III class in Sacramento County service.

Or: 2. Four years of professional experience in environmental inspections, enforcement, regulation, analysis, and/or research performing journey level duties and responsibilities equivalent to the Environmental Specialist (Level II) class in Sacramento County service.

Note: Possession of a Master’s Degree from an accredited college or university in health science, public health, natural science, physical science, environmental science, business or public administration, or a related field may substitute for one year of the required experience.
