Why Some Vows Need To Be Broken

Early in my safety and health career, I sat for the CIH and CSP as soon as I was qualified. After passing, I made a vow to myself that I would do whatever it takes to never have to sit for those exams again. 

My five-year recertification cycle for the CSP ended in December 2015 and I assumed I would continue my practice of submitting my records for certification maintenance.  Well, that wasn’t the case.  At Russ Bowen’s urging, I reneged on my vow and sat for the CSP right before the holidays.

I’m happy to report, I PASSED!!!

As a Bowen EHS instructor, it’s important to know the information we are teaching. Sitting for the exam stressed the importance of knowing that material and will help me improve our courses to better prepare our clients.

There are a number of things I would like to share that I hope will be helpful to you in preparing for and taking the exam.

Now that the exam is over, I believe the process was very beneficial to me both as an instructor and safety and health professional.
