Assessing OHSE Training Needs & Options is a two-day course that provides the OHSE practitioner, whether an internal or external consultant, with the introductory knowledge, skills and tools for identifying training needs and evaluating
The emphasis of this course is to learn how to identify training needs through the use of needs assessments, how to identify training options (both in and through outsourcing) and how to evaluate those options to make the best decision and recommendations to management.
It should be noted that this course will not focus on the design or development of the training courses themselves; this will be offered in a second CSSE course.
Assessing OHSE Training Needs and Options is an elective course in the Certified Health and Safety Consultant (CHSC) Program which may also be taken outside of the CHSC Program.
The course exam is provided to participants by email within five business days of course completion. Participants have 4 weeks from the release date to complete the exam, along with a Statement of Independent Completion. The exam deadline is final. Only documented emergencies will be considered by the CSSE as extenuating circumstances for any written request for extension. Please note that delay in opening the exam after delivery, new or added work requirements, and holidays/vacation are not considered extenuating circumstances.
Successful completion of CHSC courses requires completion of a CHSC Exam with a minimum 75% standard. Exams require 10-24 hours additional time commitment beyond in-class time for the student to demonstrate mastery of the course expectations.
Candidates who fail to successfully challenge a course exam on three separate occasions will be withdrawn from the CHSC program.
