Documentation and Replacement Documentation

You can now easily access your AIHA® education records online—any time, from anywhere, using AIHA Educational Transcripts.

Information on organizations who have authorized AIHA® to award educational credits for certification maintenance

The Board for Global EHS Credentialing® (BGC®) is the certifying organization for Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs). Earning the CIH® requires that candidates meet rigorous education and experience requirements, pass an examination, and re-certify every five years by fulfilling continuing education requirements. For complete BGC® guidance on eligibility/requirements, visit the BGC® website.

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) is recognized as the leader in high-quality credentialing for safety, health, and environmental practitioners to enhance the safety of people, property, and the environment. The Certified Safety Professional (CSP) certification is the premier credential for safety professionals. BCSP, governed by 13 directors with 7 membership organizations, establishes standards for and verifies minimum competency in professional safety practice. It also evaluates CSPs for compliance with re-certification requirements. BCSP recognizes contact hours awarded for education. Please refer to the BCSP website for details.

Partial credits will not be awarded.​ Please note that a non-registered attendee may not attend an AIHA educational offering “on behalf" of another party.
