What qualifications do I need to take the Construction Health and Safety Technician exam?

You must work part-time or full-time in construction safety. You must also have at least three years of experience, with at least 35 percent of the job related to construction safety, health and environmental practices.

How do I apply to take the test?

You can apply online after the Board of Certified Safety Professionals has processed your examination fee. Candidates must take the test within one year — the eligibility period.

It’s test day. What time should I arrive? What should I bring to the test center?

Please arrive early on test day because if you’re more than 15 minutes late, you won’t be allowed to take the test and you’ll lose your test fee. Please bring government identification, like a driver’s license, that contains your picture and signature. Your name on your identification must exactly match your name on file with the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. Candidates can’t bring any personal items, like electronic devices, jackets or hats, into the exam room. You also won’t be able to access those items until after the test is over.
