Certified Safety Professional (CSP) Exam Preparation Workshop - SOLD OUT

advanced | 4.01 Safety CM Points/24 Contact Hours/3.0 CEU/COC Points | Friday, Saturday & Sunday | 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. | Limit: 50

This PDC is designed to prepare individuals for the comprehensive examination leading to certification as a CSP. It covers the four areas of the exam: engineering, management, information and communication management and professional ethics and conduct. Lectures, sample problems, and discussions on a variety of subjects will be used. An outline for study will be provided for those beginning their preparation. Pertinent reference materials will also be discussed to allow participants to focus and fine tune their studies in specific areas.

Value Added:
Prepare for the CSP exam by focus on the four major areas of the exam with lectures, sample problems, and discussions that will fine tune studies in specific areas.

Knowledge of one and two variable statistics, chemistry, biology, engineering principles, and understanding of probability

Note: Participants must pass the ASP Fundamentals Exam or hold the designation of Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) before sitting for the CSP Exam.

Learning Aid:
Participants must bring a scientific calculator. It is recommended you bring one of the BCSP allowable models:

  • Casio models FX-115, FX-250, FX-260, FX-300
  • Hewlett-Packard models hp 9, hp 10, hp 12, hp 30
  • Texas Instruments models TI-30, TI-34, TI-35, TI-36

Any version of these makes and models may be used. For example, a Hewlett-Packard hp 30s is permitted, as is a Texas Instruments TI-30Xa.

Upon completion, the participant will be able to:

  • Solve analytical math exam questions.
  • List and interpret readings and reference materials for use as study aids.
  • Create an outline for study for fine tuning exam prep.
  • Discuss the application of materials, theories, and management practices to EHS situations.
  • Identify the Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) requirements for the CSP certification and range and scope of information covered.
  • Explain test taking strategies, test formats, scoring procedures and recent exam results.
  • Utilize a “testing” format to review content materials.
  • Recognize limitations to exam preparation.
