Continuing Education

The Continuing Education Program (CE) provides environmental and occupational health training in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. CE has four components:

  • The Worker Education and Training Program provides training on hazardous waste, emergency response, and related topics to tribal governments and organizations, preapprenticeship programs, and other underserved worker populations in our region.
  • The Northwest Center for Occupational Health and Safety Continuing Education program supports professional, employer, and worker education in industrial hygiene and safety, ergonomics, occupational medicine, and occupational health nursing.
  • The Pacific Northwest OSHA Education Center offers open enrollment courses, which are tailored to individual employers, and Safety and Health Specialist Certificate programs, meeting standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
  • The Young Worker Safety and Health Program provides training and develops and distributes high school curriculum materials throughout Washington state to raise awareness of workplace health and safety issues for working teenagers.
