Volunteers Sought to Better Define Education Needs for Risk Assessment/Exposure Assessment Practitioners

Posted September 11, 2014

AIHA is seeking volunteer subject matter experts (SMEs) to participate in a project to better address the various education needs for persons conducting risk assessments/exposure assessments (RA/EA) through the development of a Body of Knowledge (BoK). The effort will bring together stakeholders and SMEs to define the education and training needs for RA/EA practitioners.

AIHA’s initiative is focused on developing a BoK that:

  • establishes the framework for entry-level education or training to prepare professionals to enter the work force
  • establishes the framework for continuing education or training programs
  • establishes the content basis for self-assessment instruments or competency profiles, to help professionals determine learning gaps and develop learning plans
  • improves the state of professional knowledge and practice

Volunteer SMEs may participate in one of three ways: as a core team member, as a member of the review team, or as a stakeholder. You may apply to participate in this project by completing the online application form.

For more information on this project, please see theroles and responsibilities sheet.

Applications are due no later than Oct. 1, 2014. Please contact Mary Ann Latko with any questions.
