Lansing, MI – WEBWIRE

Once all the documentation has been received and processed, applicants will be notified if they are approved candidates for the fall exam.

The deadline for individuals to submit their completed applications to sit for the Certified Industrial Hygienist® (CIH®) fall exam is under a month away. With the August 1st deadline approaching soon, the staff at the Board for Global EHS Credentialing® (BGC®) encourage those interested in pursuing CIH® certification to send in their paperwork as soon as possible. 
 
BGC® works diligently to ensure that all applications are received and processed for those planning to take the fall exam. The exam window takes place from October 1st through November 30th, and is the last opportunity in 2019 to sit for the examination. 
 
To be considered for eligibility, the following steps must be completed and information submitted by August 1st:

  • Create an account and apply online by visiting the BGC® Computer Application and Portfolio System.
  • Submit application forms, detailed description of work experience, and fees
  • Have official college or university degree transcripts (international degrees may require extra steps) sent directly from the institution to BGC®.
  • Submit proof of at least 4 years (48 months) of work at a professional IH level. One year or 6 months of credit is granted to graduates of an ABET-accredited IH program with a master’s or bachelor’s degree, respectively.
  • Agree to adhere to the Code of Ethics and to be governed by the Ethics Case Procedures.
  • Have at least two Professional Reference Questionnaires sent by references directly to BGC®.

 
“Once all the documentation has been received and processed, applicants will be notified if they are approved candidates for the fall exam,” said Dirk Yamamoto, PhD, CIH® and Chair of the Board for Global EHS Credentialing®. “Candidates are then encouraged to pay the exam fees and schedule their exam appointment through Prometric Testing Centers. Prometric has testing facilities that are available worldwide, but exam slots can fill up quickly. For those who cannot make the upcoming August deadline, the last day to submit completed applications for the 2020 spring exam is February 1st.”
 
All of the detailed requirements and eligibility process for those interested in pursuing CIH® certification have been clearly defined in the Candidate Handbook. It can be downloaded at: http://www.abih.org/sites/default/files/Candidate%20Handbook%20Jan2018.pdf
