All NASP/IASP certifications are stand alone certifications. However, NASP/IASP's designations are designed to be achieved in a step by step building block process where each level achieved is a step toward the next higher level. You may purchase the highest level certification, and it will encompass the building blocks below it. If you have started at a lower level and are now trying to work towards a higher certification, please contact us for special pricing. Obtaining the PSM requires successful completion of the Petroleum Safety Specialist first and then the Petroleum Safety Manager.
The student will take a comprehensive online exam for the Petroleum Safety Specialist and the Petroleum Safety Manager. You must score 80% to receive certification. You have three opportunities to pass each exam.
A refresher course and exam will be required every three (3) years. The cost of this recertification is $375.
