Industrial Ergonomic Evaluator
Certification Training Course

"I found the information from the course applicable to a variety of settings; office and industrial. I came away with evidence-based assessment tools that I can use in my practice"
Stephanie McClellan, OTR/L – Buena Vista Regional Medical Center

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.

The course exceeded my expectations! I was never bored, time went fast, the material provided was great and Jim Mecham was wonderful in all aspects. Best instructor I have had in a course.

I normally struggle doing continuing education via On Demand formats. However, the information and presentation method with OccuPro was engaging and very helpful. Nice job, Jim!

Jeffrey Johnson, MA, ATC
BTE Technologies

I appreciated the "big picture" info in the beginning, funneling down to the specific analysis tools. The videos and examples were VERY helpful. I also appreciated the opportunity to work both individually and as a group to hear ideas/input/rationals of others.

McKenzie Dekker, DPT, OCS

Jim was very professional and business like. He was able to reach out to the class and create class participation. Jim being down to earth really relaxed the class!

N/A

Thank you for a very informative and practical course on pre-placement post-offer screenings! I appreciated the extensive knowledge, expertise, and ability to adjust/tailor the course to the individual needs of attendees. The format allowed those new to the subject and the "seasoned" practitioner to gain very useful and current information. I hope to attend future classes and highly recommend this course to others who may be interested in this topic.

Kathy Wolf, OTR, CRC
Waukesha Memorial Hospital

The course was easy to follow, had lots of vital info, and taught me the dos and don'ts. Also, the On Demand format allowed me to watch from my couch! I provided great snack foods for myself!
