HazCom Registry Preparation Workshop

PDF Brochure — Next Course Offering: Fall 2016

Saturday/Sunday, September 24-25, 2016
Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel - Arlington, Virginia

 

Course Description and Objectives

 

This workshop is designed to assist hazard communication professionals preparing to sit for the AIHA Registry’s Competency Assessment for the SDS and Label Authoring Registry.  This course will address both the knowledge and skills portions of the assessment by focusing on the eight rubrics defined as the body of knowledge for SDS and label authoring and by incorporating workshop activities for each rubric.

 

 

This is not intended to be an introductory course.  Rather, participants should have much of the education, training and experience expected by the AIHA Registry.  Participants can use this course as a final “tune-up” prior to sitting for the Competency Assessment or as an initial assessment of their knowledge and skills within a comprehensive Assessment preparation strategy.

Intended Audience

Hazard communication professionals preparing to sit for the AIHA Registry’s Competency Assessment for the SDS and Label Authoring Registry (www.aiharegistries.org).
