Directors and Committee Members assure the highest professional standards and candidate qualifications. CSHM and CSMP Certifications are accredited by the Council of Engineering and Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB), an independent, voluntary membership body. Third-party accreditation further confirms the quality and psychometric testing validity of ISHM’s certifications.
There are many EHS certifications available today. When considering your options, look for certifications that are accredited, which assures that the certifying body meets standards mandated by an independent third party. Also look for a certification that matches your professional focus.
ISHM offers the only accredited EHS certifications focused entirely on the management skills. The Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) and Certified Safety Management Practitioner (CSMP) programs are both accredited by The Council of Engineering & Scientific Specialty Boards (CESB).
Past winners of the highly esteemed award have represented Border Security, Gaming, Aerospace and Healthcare industries.
I received my CSHM certification in January of 2017. Since that day my expertise of Safety has been loud and proud. I was appointed by my employer to co-chair an international safety committee. The committee has met now a few times to discuss the future of the company, safety, and its commitment to rolling out proper, detailed, and enforced safety policies and procedures. Our accident / incident response portal was a result of a great many ideas, principles, and culture teaching directly from the CSHM study materials.
The company has further recognized my expertise and I have been asked to head up present and future discussions regarding our crisis management, active shooter, and other safety regimented programs. There is no doubt in my mind that joining the ISHM, obtaining my certificate, and all the hours of study were the right choices to make.
I very much appreciate the organization and the future opportunities the certification has granted me. Some more might be right around the corner, you never know.
So many of us have worked in the field for many years and have been out of school for so long, that taking a test scares us to death. If you had not mentored me on the CSHM exam, I never would have taken it. [This service] make the caliber of safety professionals out there higher. It’s a benefit for all of us. Thank you.
Being able to provide an EHS degree plus the ISHM credential is exactly what we have been looking for in Missouri Southern State University’s Environmental Health and Safety program. During our 1-credit hour Career Planning class, students are provided information about a variety of credentials and certifications necessary for EHS careers in government and industry. Compared to other third-party, accredited certifications, ISHM’s credentials are cost-effective and demonstrate that the student has attained certain standards of performance. I will encourage our students to pursue the Certified Safety and Health Manager (CSHM) after they gain experience in the field.
When it came time to seek an EHS certification, I chose CSHM from ISHM rather than other safety management certifications because it assessed real-world technical skills I had gained after years of safety management experience in the U.S. Navy. The other test required re-visiting calculus, which has no practical value in safety compliance and hazard abatement practices in my field.
ISHM came highly recommended from another career safety professional in a contracting corporation. I was not disappointed.
