The purpose of the Safety and Health Practitioner Certificate Program is to elevate the standard of safety in Nevada by providing consistent, regulatory awareness training in occupational safety and health. The program will also provide safety professionals the venue to develop and further their skills and expertise in the safety arena.
The curriculum has been developed for a broad range of occupational settings, including, but not limited to, manufacturing, construction, service industries, and government agencies. The program also takes into account employers with limited resources, and employees with limited time for attending classes.
Classes in the Safety and Health Practitioner Certificate Program focus on methods and techniques involving: hands-on applications, safety and health program development, class projects, scenario based problem solving, foundations for instructional presentations, investigation and analysis of workplace accidents, and safety and health management tools.
A Safety and Health Practitioner Certificate is awarded upon successful completion of the curriculum within a specified time frame. Once your application has been submitted, you have three years from that date to complete the program. If you previously attended SCATS training classes, listed on the curriculum, prior to the date of your application the three year time period may be based on the starting date of those courses. The practitioner certificate will expire three years after the issue date. To recertify, the practitioner must complete 12 SCATS classes within three years of the certificate expiration date.
