Occupational Health and Safety Education Opportunity

Do you know someone interested in a safety career, but they don’t know where to start?  Columbus State Community College has a 7-course certificate in Occupational Health and Safety that is designed to provide basic supervisory and regulatory skills to those who wish to have a job in this field.

The courses are:

  • ESSH-1101 – Intro to Environmental Science, Safety & Health, or College-level chemistry (chemistry is a prerequisite for Industrial Hygiene)
  • ESSH-1700 – OSHA 30 Hour General Industry Safety & Health
  • ESSH-2111 – Hazardous Materials Management
  • CMGT-1135 – Safety & Loss Prevention
  • ESSH-1650 – OSHA 30 Hour Construction Safety & Health
  • ESSH-2520 – Health & Safety Training for Hazardous Waste Operations (40 Hour HAZWOPER)
  • ESSH-2750 – Industrial Hygiene

Students may qualify for tuition reimbursement or financial aid.  This certificate is primarily for those who already have a college degree but are seeking additional training.  Please contact Jeff Bates at jbates@cscc.edu for more information on how to get started.

All courses in the certificate can be applied to the Associate of Applied Science degree in Environmental Science, Safety & Health. Also, we’ve had good luck with our AAS in ESSH degree being approved for those who want the ASP or CSP designation.
