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 gave me a good mix of recognized check lists and quantitative tools for documentation and communication with management. This knowledge definitely adds value to my practice and marketability of our programs. I also appreciate Jim's presentation of the material. He kept the class participating and on track, had a good sense of humor, and used practical examples from his own experience.
