Do I have to take all 6 CHSC courses to obtain the CHSC designation? May I be exempt from taking a course if I demonstrate equivalency? May I write the CHSC exam without taking the course?
Candidates must successfully complete six CHSC courses in total (including successfully passing the course examinations) comprising three mandatory courses (Obligations and Liabilities of the OH&S Professional, Consulting Skills for the OH&S Professional and Applied Risk Communication for the OH&S Professional) and three elective courses from the CHSC education offerings (currently Project Management for the Health & Safety Professional, Measurement & Evaluation in OHS Managed Systems, Essentials of Risk Management, Assessing OHSE Training Needs and Options and Developing OHSE Training Courses). No equivalency is granted at this time. In other words, no substitutions may be made in lieu of taking any of the six required CHSC courses. At this time CSSE does not allow candidates to write a CHSC Exam without having participated in the applicable course
