How does the Board of Certified Safety Professionals determine eligibility to sit for examinations for the ASP and/or CSP?
BCSP uses a point system to determine eligibility for examinations. A candidate must have 48 points to sit for the Safety Fundamentals examination and 96 points to sit for the Comprehensive Practice examination.
A candidate may use only one undergraduate degree and one graduate degree for the academic requirement. The one yielding the highest value is used when there is more than one degree. Each month of acceptable professional safety experience earns one point. The total points are the sum of academic points and experience points.
Work experience, continuing education courses, seminars, and certificate programs are not a substitute for, nor receive credit toward the academic requirement.
