This program is designed to prepare the individual for employment as a safety professional with additional emphasis on industrial hygiene and environmental management. Courses may be taken individually to upgrade those already employed as safety specialists. Most Occupational Safety and Health courses are taught in the evening hours to accommodate those employed during the day.

A graduate of the program is awarded the Associate of Applied Science degree.

The safety certificate will meet the needs of growing general industry and petrochemical expansion. This certificate will allow students to seek an entry-level position in the field of safety. The certificate will also allow students to continue their education and enter into the Occupational Safety and Health Associate Degree Program so they can become a safety professional at a later date.

A minimum grade of “C” must be earned in all courses outlined in the program. In addition, a grade point average of 2.0 must be maintained in all courses submitted in the degree plan to obtain the Associate of Applied Science Degree.

Effective Fall 2014
