Congress Participants Can Leave with CEUs, Personal Enrichment
Not to take anything away from the personal and professional enrichment offered every year at NSC's Congress & Expo, but business is business. There is no way to overvalue the networking opportunities the event affords, but many attendees also like knowing their presence and participation is helping their career development in a tangible way--namely by earning them continuing education units. With that in mind, here is a rundown of the National Safety Council's policy regarding CEUs.
NSC follows the guidelines established by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). The Board of Certified Safety Professionals will award 0.5 COC for at least one full day, but less than two days, of attendance at Congress & Expo 2007. For 2 or more days of attendance, 1.0 COC will be awarded. No points are awarded for less than one full day of attendance.
NSC has received approval from the American Board of Industrial Hygiene for the awarding of Safety CM points for attendance at Congress, as well as the awarding of IH, Management, or Safety CM points for each Congress PDS. Approval code 07-1494 for submitting documentation to the ABIH. 0.5 CM points are earned for every half-day of attendance at the conference. For both COC and CM points, it is the individual's responsibility to submit the appropriate documentation directly to his/her governing body (BCSP or ABIH) to receive proper credit. Questions regarding certification requirements should be directed to BCSP or ABIH. For more Information, contact BSCP at (217) 359.9263, and ABIH at (517) 321-2638.
