AIHA Announces 2007 Professional Development Courses Call for Proposals
Posted on June 15, 2006
The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) announced today that it will be accepting proposals for professional development courses (PDCs) to be held Saturday and Sunday, June 2–3, 2007, in conjunction with the 2007 American Industrial Hygiene Conference & Expo (AIHce) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The deadline for submissions is August 15, 2006.
AIHA offers this competitive program to promote occupational and environmental health and safety (OEHS) excellence by offering fresh, dynamic solutions through its superior professional education program. PDCs provide information on new standards, regulations, and innovations in technology; traditional occupational and safety issues; new chemical and biological threats; and upcoming career challenges.
To request a printed brochure of topics, contact Bruce Hermit, AIHA’s continuing education coordinator, at (703) 846-0752 or email@example.com. AIHA’s online PDC submission site for the AIHce 2007 PDCs in Philadelphia, www.aiha.org/callforpdcs.htm, will open Friday, June 30, 2006.
AIHce attendees have also expressed interest in the following topics:
- Consulting topics (legal; choosing the best business model; insurance; small business taxes; and best negotiation practices)
- Health care
- International Standards and effect on businesses in the U.S. and abroad
- Phase II studies
- Presentation techniques for selling yourself and your ideas
- Regulatory and occupational standards
- Toxicology case studies
- Instrumentation techniques
There is no fee to submit a PDC program proposal. Selected presenters will receive an honorarium. All submissions must be received online by August 15, 2006. Presenters and students at the PDCs in 2007 will earn certification maintenance (CM) points, continuing education units (CEUs), and continuance of certification points (COCs) to obtain and maintain professional certifications.
