NC OSHERC Continuing Education

Summer Institute


Presented by the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health Education and Research Center at the University of North Carolina, the annual Occupational Safety and Health Summer Institute is designed to provide practical information and a forum for the exchange of ideas among participants with widely diverse backgrounds. The interdisciplinary focus makes the Institutes unique in continuing professional education and development.

The institute is designed for industrial hygienists, safety personnel, occupational physicians, occupational health nurses, managers, supervisors, personnel specialists, union health and safety professionals and others with the responsibility of providing a safe and healthy work environment. Approximately thirty courses dealing with a wide range of occupational safety and health and environmental issues are offered at each institute. Courses generally range from one to five days in length.

The three Technician Certificate Programs are offered through the Summer Institute:

Each certificate 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 program certificate and plaque will be awarded. Get more information about the Certificate Programs.
