Professional Credential & Course Challenging
Challenging An IASHEP Certified Course Credential
The International Association of Environmental, Health and Safety Professionals (IASHEP) believes that if you have life learning skills which means when you learn a trade, it is for life. Regardless of where you live or where you work, you can take the skill with you. You have the potential to become a master of your craft if you stick with it, allowing not only opportunity for professional growth but personal growth, too.
IASHEP also believes if you have taken a course somewhere else like an OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC), National Safety Council (NSC), Institute of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) OSHACADEMY or other colleges and universities, or but you did not get a professional certificate or professional credential but only obtained a certificate of completion for that course, you can challenge the IASHEP professional credentialed course and change your certificate of completion to a professional credential.
How Do You Do This?
First – you must be a member of IASHEP which is $100.00 per year. Part of your membership funds go to support our two charities St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Tunnels to Towers. IASHEP is one of the only professional safety, health or environmental associations that gives to outside non-profit charitable organizations.
Secondly - You must request IASHEP to challenge the course by filling out the course challenge document that is found on our website at www.iashep.org and pay your course challenge fees. The fee for course challenging is $195.00.
Third (Testing) - You must take a proctored and timed open book examination and you must pass the written test with an 80% or better to receive your professional credential. You have three chances to pass the examination. There is an additional fee of $100.00 for each additional certification test retake.
Should you fail to pass the course challenge test, you must then take the classroom version of the course. Failure to pass the IASHEP professional proctored examination will result in your fees being non-refunded.
