Certificate Programs

Safety and Health Specialist Certificate Program

CSHOSafety & Health Specialist certificate tracks are designed to improve the practical skills and knowledge of those with safety and health responsibilities on the job, as well as collateral duty employees and their representatives. Each certificate program consists of courses identified as “key” in opening the door for a solid foundation in OSHA standards and regulatory requirement solutions for your workplace.

The certificate tracks describe the number of core and elective courses required to successfully complete each certificate program. All courses applied towards certificate completion must have been completed within 5 years of certificate program completion date (completion date must be within 5 years from the oldest class being applied to certificate completion). Please plan accordingly. There are options in certificate electives to make up courses and hours.  Please inquire.

Changes as of January 1, 2017: 

Certificate program requirements are subject to change. On January 1, 2017, Safety and Health Specialist tracks were revised to enhance the learning experience using OSHA standards in the discipline more broadly, and include 7 core courses. The elective options changed from number of courses to minimum number of training contact hours…which unrestricts participants in their selection and course availability.

Those enrolled in certificate programs under a prior format may continue with those tracks as planned OR opt to follow the new tracks to certificate completion….whichever best suits your schedule and knowledge requirements.
