can do it better. The presenters bring a wide variety of experience
to the table, but the real stars of the workshop are you - past
attendees note the interactive approach focusing on their problems,
from getting administrators involved in safety to dealing with
regulatory concerns. The course covers all of the content areas of
the certification exam (presented on Sunday through NRCC), including
a sample test in the same format as the real one. Whether you are a
new Chemical Hygiene Officer or an "old" one, you will find something
to put to real use in this fast-paced presentation.
