Like most safety training, our certificates "certify" you have completed a formal course of study.
OSHAcademy certificates do not certify you as a "qualified" safety professional or trainer. And,
of course, OSHA does not "certify" anyone as a qualified safety professional either.
In the USA, to be "certified" as a qualified safety professional you need to meet experience
and educational requirements and successfully pass an exam from a credentialing organization
like the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (www.bcsp.com) or the Institute for Safety
and Health Management (www.ishm.org).
