I have trained hundreds of professionals to successfully perform quality, reliable office ergonomic evaluations achieving ongoing success within their companies or as a professional consulting career.”

This private credential workshop is provided to assure competency in conducting ergonomic evaluations within your organization only. There is no state or national licensing criteria required to perform ergonomics analysis in the workplace. However, there is national board certification to become a certified professional (CPE)or industrial ergonomist (CIE). Completion of this course does not mean the certificate holder is qualified to perform evaluations outside of the organization nor can they call themselves a certified “ergonomist”. Our certification is designed to help you evaluate healthy employees and set up safe work areas. For more information on national certification, ask us.
