AIHce 2009 Expands Certification Options

Celebrating 70 years of being the largest annual gathering of industrial hygienists, AIHce organizers have upped the educational ante for the 2009 version of the event, taking place in Toronto, May 30-June 4. Not only will an unprecedented five types of certification maintenance options be offered, but new electronic features will be available for the majority of pre-conference professional development courses (PDCs).

New to AIHce 2009 are certification points awarded by both the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals and the Canadian Registration Board of Occupational Hygienists. Conference organizers say that incorporating these types of points not only enhances the value of the conference but also embraces the 2009 theme of going “beyond borders,” serving the international community by working hand in hand with international certifying bodies.

AIHce also has been approved again for certification maintenance (CM) points by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. Participants will be eligible to earn up to 6.5 CM points by choosing to attend PDCs and technical sessions throughout the week.

Pre-conference courses held on May 29-June 1 will offer participants the opportunity to earn continuance of certification (COC) points in conjunction with the CSP certification from the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) and continuing education units from AIHA, an approved provider for the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

Complete information on what types of points will be awarded for attending the various education events at AIHce can be found at www.aihce2009.org under the education program/CM points tab.

New e-options also have been added to pre-conference courses via AIHA’s iWeb community. Downloadable pre-reads and electronic handouts along with online communities for collaborative learning are now available. More than 90 percent of all pre-conference courses will incorporate one or all of these new enhancements. These new features will not only allow registrants access to course information well in advance of the actual conference, but they also will heighten and expand participants’ learning experience beyond the course presentation, organizers say.
