Education and Research Center (ERC)

Continuing Education (CE)

 

The Continuing Education (CE) Program (Click here for Catalog) is based in the Department of Environmental Health at the University of Cincinnati. The major purpose of the continuing education component of the ERC is to develop and present a multi-disciplinary program of courses in the fields of occupational health, industrial hygiene, safety, and nursing.

These courses are offered to enhance the education and expand the knowledge and skills of practicing professionals. This purpose is accomplished through objectives including the following:
  • provide formalized training in occupational safety and health at different levels;
  • meet the educational needs of practicing professionals through regional needs assessment;
  • serve as a resource to the community through awareness presentations; and
  • provide services to occupational health professionals.


The CE Program features:

  • experienced faculty with 28 trainers having expertise from 20 different occupational safety and health disciplines;
  • diverse course offerings with over 100 unique courses with over 1000 individuals trained annually;
  • collaborations with numerous external partners to provide experiential and customized training; and
  • access to state of the art teaching technologies.


Participants in our CE courses come from a variety of occupational and environmental health settings including government, labor organizations, and industry. The backgrounds of the participants vary and include those just beginning to work in a safety or health field, with experience and needing a refresher course in basic material, and professionals keeping abreast of current advanced developments. The CE Program is also the lead member of the Great Lakes OSHA Education Center and collaborates to offer many occupational safety courses.
