This online self-study course is designed to assist hazard communication professionals preparing to take the AIHA Registry Programs’ SDS and Label Authoring Registry competency assessment.

Broken into eight parts, this series addresses both the knowledge and skills portions of the assessment by focusing on the eight rubrics defined as the competency framework for SDS and label authoring. A final exam is not included, but we strongly recommend reviewing the practice questions provided in the SDS & Label Authoring Registry Proficiency Study Guide (a complimentary resource).

Course content is intermediate to advanced and is intended for those who have much of the education, training, and experience expected by the AIHA Registry. Taking this course is perfect as a final "tune-up" prior to sitting for the competency assessment or as an initial assessment of your knowledge and skills within a comprehensive assessment preparation strategy.

Please note: It is not required to take this prep course in order to sit for the Registry Program competency assessment and completion does not guarantee admission into the SDS and Label Authoring Registry program. Successful completion of this course translates to 1.3 qualification points applicable for the Registry Program exam application.
