Our Industrial Ergonomic Evaluator Certification Course is designed for professionals who are interested in implementing or expanding their knowledge in on-site injury prevention and total body (lower back and upper extremity) and industrial ergonomics. A significant portion of this class is hands-on testing using the NIOSH, OSHA, WISHA, RULA, REBA, ACGIH-TLVs, and other evaluation tools. The training course discusses evidence based evaluations and consulting protocols based on current OSHA standards, NIOSH guidelines, and published clinical literature. At the end of day one, two, and three, you will take an assessment tool quiz and may apply for certification as a Certified Industrial Ergonomic Evaluator (CIEE Certification) if you score 80% or higher for all three quizzes.

I was apprehensive about taking the course online, but I was engaged the entire time and I don't feel like I missed out on anything but networking with those who would have been my classmates. Excellent job to Jim and the editors who put it together.
