Students Look to the CIH Program for Future Career Advancement

The American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) administers the internationally recognized Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) program.


The value proposition for the CIH credential is based on increased professional credibility, personal satisfaction and a competitive edge for job placement and advancement.  This fact is recognized by many college students who are planning to enter the industrial hygiene profession when they graduate.
The CIH certification has been the premier occupational hygiene certification for more than 50 years, gaining national and international recognition during that time period. The requirements for education, experience and examination are rigorous and some of the most demanding in the industry. While some other certification programs have relaxed their requirements in recent years, the CIH has continued to set high standards so that only the best occupational hygienists achieve the CIH.  This fact helps to explain why so many aspiring students preparing for a career in the industrial hygiene profession view earning the CIH designation as an important step in their future.
For students and non-certified professionals still learning about the many benefits of the CIH program, ABIH released a video last year that provides an overview of why people become certified.  The online video, available at, communicates the value of the CIH credential to those considering applying to the program.
“Although college graduates entering the industrial hygiene profession need to also develop their professional level IH experience, it’s great to know that many have already made the decision to apply for the CIH once they become eligible,” reported Tracy Parsons, CIH, Administrative Program Manager at ABIH.   “To assist with the process, ABIH has also made available the Candidate Handbook which provides information about the qualifications and examination processes and all of the requirements so that they can understand the steps involved in earning the CIH.”
