Patrick J. Karol,

Have you been considering a safety certification such as the ASP, CSP, or CHST but have struggled to make the commitment? There are plenty of excuses, some valid, some not so much. Regardless, failing to achieve certification, or even worse, not pursuing certification, can cost you 25K per year! That's how much more certified safety pros make over non-certified safety pros. Studies from the BCSP and NSC show that safety professionals who hold a Certified Safety Professional designation not only make more money but are also more marketable. Anyone who keeps an eye on job openings knows that a quick look at the qualifications section shows that the CSP designation is required for most mid to upper-level safety positions. To be sure, a designation does not guarantee success, but it does open doors to opportunities. It’s still up to you to deliver.

Don’t put it off any longer. Getting started is often the key and the biggest hurdle to achieving a big goal. Are you wondering where to start? We have a few suggestions.

1.     Study alone. Studying alone allows you to study when it best fits your schedule and at your own pace. Nito Solutions offers study material, including a guidebook and 400-question practice exams for the ASP, CSP, and CHST.

2.     Join a study group. If you're a member of ASSP, consider joining a chapter study group. This option fosters a small group learning environment where you can learn from each other's experiences. Moreover, your study group members can serve as accountability partners, keeping you on track with your study goals.

3.     Attend an exam prep workshop. You can schedule to attend a 3-day exam prep workshop through ASSP. If you are an ASSP member, your chapter can schedule a dedicated workshop directly through Nito Solutions. These workshops offer a unique learning experience where you can benefit from the instructor’s knowledge and learn from other attendees. Additionally, attending a workshop ensures that you dedicate focused time away from work and other distractions. It also provides a valuable networking opportunity with other safety professionals.

Regardless of your path, achieving certification can lead to a higher salary, more opportunities, and, most importantly, a sense of accomplishment. Make a commitment today to take the first step by deciding how you will study.
