Certification Programs

Changes to AMHSA’s Certification Programs: As a result of significant changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Legislation, AMHSA is presently revising and updating both our training materials and certification programs.

AMHSA Certificates of Achievement

AMHSA recognizes that a number of municipal employees have extensive training in the field of health and safety and deserve recognition. We also know that employees and municipalities need guidance in selecting the appropriate training for staff depending on their role within the municipal health and safety program. Please note that training must be completed within three years to achieve these certificates - if you are having difficulty finding the courses you require in your area, please feel free to contact us at safety@amhsa.net or 1.877.537.9063 for assistance.

When you have attended all of the required courses for a certification, please call 587.952.2268 or 1.877.537.9063, or email safety@amhsa.net.
