Ergonomics Certification & Course

Considering obtaining an Ergonomics Certification?

Ergonomics - an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that people and things (particularly work stations) can interact most efficiently and safely.

Considering a career in ergonomics? Want to be Certified Ergonomic Evaluation Specialist (CEES)? I've taken the liberty to present several options for you

Ergonomics Certification &
Careers in Ergonomics Research

Careers in ergonomics research are plentiful and can be found at universities as well as organizations such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA; and the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM; www.acoem.com).

If you are more interested in becoming a consultant for ergonomic safety, a good starting place would be the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Their headquarters are in Washington D.C and they have satellite offices through out the US. Check to see if there is one near you. Their work is to educate and train in the areas of ergonomics. They can also help you locate more work as an ergonomics consultant as they recommend you to corporations who need an in-house ergonomics supervisor.


What Kind of Ergonomic Certification Would I need?

There are many different types of ergonomic certification as well as a wide array of ergonomic courses available. They range from degree courses (for instance if you want to do industrial product design) to private label courses. A private label course is probably a good starting point. Such as:

Ergonomics Certification in the USA

In the United States, professional Ergonomics certification is granted by the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE)

The professional designation is that the person is a Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE), which is something you should look for if you are considering hiring a Human Factors/Ergonomist.

Certified Ergonomic Evaluation Specialist

One of the private label ergonomic certification is the Certified Ergonomic Evaluation Specialist (CEES) Designation. It establishes your credentials as a trained ergonomic evaluation professional.

This ergonomics certification would signify that you have demonstrated competency by planning, administering and reporting ergonomic evaluations done in real-life fieldwork conditions.

According to Roymatheson.com (a provider of that ergonomic course), a Certified Ergonomic Evaluation Specialist demonstrates skills are based on knowledge of guidelines from OSHA and NIOSH, as well as the revised ANSI protocol and published clinical literature. "The certification reflects a grounding in the multi-disciplinary nature of ergonomic evaluation, its' venues, issues and solutions." (site quote) The CEES designation is recognized by corporations across North America, Asia, Africa and the United Kingdom.

Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist (CEAS)

This ergonomic certification certifies that you are able to perform a basic office and industrial/manufacturing/healthcare ergonomics analysis using OSHA ergonomics assessment tools. After successfully completing the workshop and submitting two ergonomics analysis reports you will be awarded your certification designating you as a Certified Ergonomics Assessment Specialist I (CEAS I).

This is a more practical applications certification and is usually an onsite seminar. More info about this ergonomics seminar.

CEAS Ergonomics Course Description

Learn how to perform an OSHA-compliant ergonomics analysis for industrial and office jobs in this basic occupational ergonomics workshop. You will learn to identify potential hazards, develop cost-effective solutions for prevention, and develop skills necessary for marketing to company executives inside and outside your facility.
