BCSP Improves Application Process for Non-U.S. Degree Holders

Now, academic records will be submitted directly to BCSP, where they will continue to be evaluated under the same rigorous standards for U.S. equivalency.

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has a special announcement about the application process for non-U.S. degree holders. See the press release below:

Indianapolis (February 6, 2020) - Beginning February 3, 2020, non-U.S. degree holders who wish to apply for the Associate Safety Professional® (ASP®) and Certified Safety Professional® (CSP®) certifications may now upload their academic records directly to BCSP during the application process.

Previously, non-U.S. degree holders were required to submit academic records to a third party degree evaluator from National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) to determine U.S. equivalency. Now, academic records will be submitted directly to BCSP, where they will continue to be evaluated under the same rigorous standards for U.S. equivalency.

With this change, BCSP will encourage more international applicants by simplifying the process and removing the monetary barrier associated with non-U.S. degrees.

"These changes reflect BCSP's commitment to continuous improvement in our certification processes, as well as our desire to grow professional safety practice through certification globally," said BCSP's Director, Global Strategic Advancement Erica Poff MA, PMP, CAE, IOM. "Not only are we breaking down barriers to entry for qualified safety professionals, but we are doing so while maintaining our high standards of accountability and fairness in evaluating degrees."

Becoming the leader in global safety is BCSP's goal. A standardized, worldwide base of safety knowledge is key in reducing workplace hazards and incidents.
