Begin at any time and set the course schedule that is right for you. From time to time, learners will find certain subject matter of particular interest to them, and want to explore it further. Although this can be done independent of the CHSEP program, it may be possible to achieve credit for this independent study, providing the direction and content of the study is consistent with the goals of CHSEP. This elective option is for learners who wish to drill down into a topic to meet personal learning needs specific to their own operational environment. In this course, learners will establish their own learning goals, review a text(s) and review journal articles related to their learning goals, and write a paper outlining what they've achieved. Supervision is provided through each of these phases, and the final grade is weighted to recognize efforts in each of these tasks. The certificate program is recognized for eligibility by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP). This course may be eligible for BCRSP Continuing Maintenance Points (CMPs).
