ASP to Become Certification, BCSP Says

BCSP has announced the Associate Safety Professional (ASP) will become an independent certification in the fourth quarter of 2014. Currently, ASP is a designation toward achieving the Certified Safety Professional (CSP). The organization says with this change, the ASP will remain as the first of two exams to obtain the CSP, but will enable ASP credential holders to keep it as a certification.

To obtain the ASP certification, safety professionals will need a minimum of a Bachelor's degree in any field or an Associate's degree in safety, health, environmental or a related field. Also, at least 1 year of experience at a professional level having safety duties is required.
