Help - Courses and Study Tools

Self Study or a Live Course?

Are you trying to decide whether to use a study tool or if registering for one of our live exam review courses is better for you? Let's take a look.

Study Tools

Choose to study on your own with one of the Bowen EHS Study Tools if most of the following apply to you:

  • I have a plan of how I need to study.
  • I have enough discipline to study on my own.
  • I am fairly confident that I can figure out what I need to study.
  • I am self-motivated to find answers when I need to.
  • Most of the exam material is review for me; I have been exposed to it before.

Live Exam Review Course

Choose to study with a certified instructor using an exam review course if most of the following apply to you:

  • I study much better when someone helps me prioritize.
  • I don't have the time to figure out what I need to study.
  • I learn better when I have regular access to a live instructor and class.
  • I prefer to have a structured study regimen to help me prepare.
  • I am uncertain how much of the exam material I remember or know.
