IP for IH—Instructional Practices for Industrial Hygienists

Thursday, September 2, 2021 | 1:00 – 2:00 pm ET

Earn 1 Contact Hour

Many industrial hygienists are required to design, develop, and deliver health and safety training. However, they haven’t had the opportunity to learn how people process information, develop skills, and later apply those skills and information. Even with this knowledge, how do you best design training to match?

In this webinar, you’ll get a brief introduction of the “information processing” model of human cognition and learn specific evidence-based techniques for creating training that people remember, leads to changed behaviors, and results in desired outcomes.
