The professional credentials of an instructor are direct proof of their mastery of certain Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) topics and fundamentals. The valid common credentials in the marketplace today include, Registered Professional Engineer (PE), Registered Professional Industrial Hygienist (RPIH), Certified Safety Professional (CSP), Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) and Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM).
Certificates should be signed and sealed by the instructor. Because OSHA does not certify HAZWOPER instructors, a registered health and safety professional should sign and seal the certificate. Without this, the certificate does not carry much weight and will not stand up to scrutiny. A student should never sign their own certificate as being proof of satisfactorily completing a training course. We have seen this in the marketplace and we do not see how a regulatory agency could possibly accept these certificates.
Our instructors hold advanced degrees i.e., M.S. or higher related to the EH&S arena (engineering and science). Moreover, our instructors have also taken additional continuing education courses from such well-known institutes as Harvard University. Many of our professionals are also registered engineers, and certified/registered safety professionals in various concentrations. Your certificate from us will be sealed by one of our registered EH&S professionals.
