ABIH CERTIFICATION MAINTENANCE POINTS (CM's)

Fiscal Year 2014
December 4, 2013


Effective November 28, 2011, the American Board of Industrial Hygiene (ABIH) has discontinued CM point request reviews for Category 4 Education events. The courses and webinars given by the OSHA Training Institute fall under this new policy.

It is now the responsibility of each Certified Industrial Hygienist (CIH) to calculate the CM points corresponding to each course and to verify the CM category (Industrial Hygiene, Safety, or Ethics). See http://www.abih.org/maintain-certification/cm-credit-education-events for detailed guidance on calculating points.

As a courtesy to our students, the OSHA Training Institute is listing the CEUs for each course which may be eligible for CM points, along with suggestions for the category of CM points (Industrial Hygiene or Safety) that may apply.

CIHs are advised to retain course certificates, course matrices or schedules, and the course description found in LearningLink as well as any other materials that will support documentation of attendance and content of Category 4 Education events in case that their applications are audited by ABIH.

The CEUs listed apply only for course sessions sponsored by the OSHA Training Institute and listed in our course catalogs. Courses that are given at the request of OSHA Regions, Area Offices, other Federal agencies, State or local governments, or private companies, even when the instruction is provided by instructors of OTI, may involve variations in length and/or content from that of similar courses given by OTI.

Updates to this table will be made as necessary.

Webinar/webcast approvals are listed separately after the full courses.

Webinars/Archived Webcasts (Federal and State OSHA Personnel Only)

Webinars/archived webcasts that may be eligible for CM points are listed below. Except where noted, they have no set expiration date. However, the approvals for each webinar/webcast do have a specific start date. In order to receive CM points, you need to have a certificate of completion that is dated on or after the listed start date, and before the listed expiration date if there is one. If you took a listed webinar/webcast between January 1, 2009, and September 30, 2009, you will need to re-take the offering to get a certificate with a date that ABIH will accept. You can register to re-take the offering through LearningLink.

Prior to January 1, 2009, ABIH had a different approval system. Please see the ABIH website for approval numbers and CM points for webinars taken before this date.

As a courtesy to our students, the OSHA Training Institute is listing the length (in minutes) as well as the suggested CM category to assist the CIH in calculating CM points. The Institute does not provide CEUs for webinars.
