Karen - the within-six-year requirement is for experience, not education! Otherwise we'd be hard pressed to certify anyone older than about 30. I have no doubt that you meet the current experience requirement as CHO at Baylor.

It says on the NRCC website that requirements for the CHO exam must be met within 6 years of the application date. Does this mean that if I got my PhD in Chemistry back in 2002, that I am not eligible?
