For those looking to make 2016 the year they become certified, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene® has developed a clear path to CIH® certification. The CIH® is held only by an elite group of professionals and provides the credential that allows an Industrial Hygienist to stand out from the crowd.
The first step is to review one’s eligibility which can be determined in a matter of minutes using a self-assessment tool. ABIH® can help each person understand what is needed to close any requirement gaps that may be found. Once this has been completed, the application process simply requires educational transcripts, two professional references and a small application fee. Those planning to take the Spring Exam need to successfully submit all application materials by February 1st. August 1st is the application deadline for the Fall Exam.
Everything you need to know about the steps toward certification and the application process can be found on the ABIH website under the Become Certified tab.
Once you determine that you are eligible to sit for the exam in 2016 and want to take an exam prep course, view the Bowen EHS course calendar to find the right course for you. Bowen EHS courses are designed to review the fundamentals of each subject while explaining what to expect on the exam. We also believe that clients are more likely to achieve success when involved in a connected learning environment. The majority of our courses come with a 1-year membership to the Bowen EHS® Member Center which includes access to additional study sessions, subject-specific quizzes, and webinars.
You can read more about the CIH® certification process in the December 30, 2015 ABIH press release.
