This course 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 eight-part, On Demand series 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.

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.
This series is not required in order to take the Registry Program Exam and completion does not guarantee admission into the SDS and Label Authoring registry program.  This course does not have a final exam, but we strongly recommend reviewing the practice questions provided in the SDS & Label Authoring Registry Proficiency Study Guide.
