The North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Education & Research Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has designed and developed three Technician Certificate Programs. Each program has been designed to recognize those individuals who have completed a selected set of requirements outlined for an Industrial Hygiene, Safety, or Environmental Technician. Upon successful completion of specific required courses and elective courses, a certificate program plaque will be awarded. Each Certificate Program requires participants to obtain six credits. Successful completion of two required courses and elective courses to complete the credit requirements is mandatory for each Technician Certificate Programs. Courses designated as Electives may be used as elective credit in any of the three Technician Certificate Programs. An exam must be passed at the end of each course.
Only courses offered at the North Carolina Annual Occupational Safety and Health Winter and Summer Institutes will be accepted as program credit.
