For IHs the most recognized professional credential is the Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) obtained through the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. Presenters will cover requirements to sit for the exam and information on preparation strategies. The perspectives will cover self-assessment, gathering study materials, forming a game plan, getting mentally focused for the exam, and test taking strategies. Lessons learned from those who were not successful initially will be given. The session will benefit students entering the profession, current professionals working to obtain the CIH, and their employers. Please note that this session is not intended to take the place of an exam review course.
