MESH Training Record
The MESH certificate program series consists of certificate programs sponsored by the N.C. Department of Labor (NCDOL), North Carolina State University-Industrial Extension Service (NCSU-IES), and the Safety and Health Council of North Carolina (SHCNC). These programs are educational, flexible and designed for working professionals and non-degree seeking adults who are looking for continuing education offerings to meet their professional and personal goals.
Earning a certificate requires no specific educational background or previous training. Individuals begin by submitting an application; then complete the required number of core and elective courses. They complete the courses of their choice at their own pace. Each certificate is awarded after successful completion of 100 course hours. Courses range from 1 hour sessions to week-long workshops and are offered at various locations across North Carolina by each of the three sponsors.
Environmental management and employee safety and health issues are a tremendous responsibility. In today's busy work place, most managers and supervisors are not fully aware of, nor prepared to meet, day-to-day environmental, health and/or safety responsibilities. The certificate programs are designed to meet these responsibilities and much more.
Each certificate program:
- Is designed for working safety professionals and employees responsible for oversight of environmental, safety and health programs.
- Requires no prior experience or degree.
- Offers training courses across the state by each of the three sponsors.
- Provides professional instructors from NCDOL, SHCNC and NCSU-IES.
