Assessing OHSE Training Needs & Options

Course Description

Assessing OHSE Training Needs & Options is a two-day course that provides the OHSE practitioner, whether an internal or external consultant, with the introductory knowledge, skills and tools for identifying training needs and evaluating high quality health and safety programs available to meet those needs based on adult learning principles. The course objectives apply to multi-industry training courses.

The emphasis of this course is to learn how to identify training needs through the use of needs assessments, how to identify training options (both in and through outsourcing) and how to evaluate those options to make the best decision and recommendations to management.

It should be noted that this course will not focus on the design or development of the training courses themselves; this will be offered in a second CSSE course.

Assessing OHSE Training Needs and Options is an elective course in the Certified Health and Safety Consultant (CHSC) Program which may also be taken outside of the CHSC Program.


“A great course, as this was my first virtual course, I was skeptical. The instructor was excellent at delivering the material and keeping us engaged, loved the group activities. Thank you.”
