I took one of LSIs lab safety courses and bought a copy of the CHO course.  I was prepared and passed the NRCC-CHO exam on the first sitting.  It didn't hurt that I had already sat for my CSP, so their may have been some overlap, but what I got from LSI was IMHO sufficient.

< SPAN STYLE='font-size:11pt'>Does anybody know of a good training for how to be a Chemical Hygiene Officer that is not too expensive?  My school wan ts me to be the CHO for the chemicals in the chemistry stockroom (not the wh ole school) and I’m insisting that I need to be trained in order to ta ke this on.  Perhaps the training may tell me I don’t want to tak e this on, but we’ll see.  They are trying to find a cheap traini ng that would adequately prepare me for this job and they (and I) don’ t know where to look.  I know about the Lab Safety Institute’s Au g 19 training in Boston, and I will actually be in the Boston area for my va cation at that time, but they are looking for something less expensive where they wouldn’t have to pay to  put me up in a hotel room as well as pay for the training. Any ideas?
