Notes

  1. Students may elect to take CHM 130/130A as an automatic substitution for FIP 230
  2. Students completing EHS 215 are eligible for OSHA HAZWOPER technician-level certification according to 29 CFR 1910.120(q)
  3. Successful completion of the A.A.S. in Environment, Health, and Safety Technology may be used to fulfill the academic component of requirements for the designation as a Certified Safety Professional (CSP). See www.bcsp.org for details.
  4. EHST technical classes are scheduled on an every-other-year (biennial) basis:
    Even years (fall): EHS 112, EHS 212
    Odd years (spring): EHS 116, EHS 211, EHS 215
    Odd years (fall): EHS 111, EHS 218
    Even years (spring): EHS 113, EHS 114, ISC 115
    (FIP 230 runs fall semesters, even and odd years.)


1The above plan of study is the standard curriculum for the above program. Any deviation from the prescribed curriculum must have approval in advance. All prerequisite course requirements must also be met. To graduate the student must successfully complete all the required courses, the required credit hours for electives, and have at least a 2.0 overall grade point average. This plan of study is subject to change when the college thinks such action is in the best interest of the student or the program. It is the responsibility of the student to meet requirements for graduation. If accepted students do not enroll for three successive semesters, they must contact the Admissions office to determine if readmission is necessary. 

V.A. Students: An approval signature from the V.A. Office is required before registering. Some courses may not be certifiable.
