Certified membership is NZISM’s primary membership level. Employers engaging a NZISM Certified Safety and Health Professional know they are dealing with an individual who is at the top of their profession.

To obtain certification and maintain the high standards certified membership requires is a rigorous process and our certified members have the respect of their peers. You can only look at becoming a Certified Member after gaining Graduate membership.

This webinar covers the Graduate to Certified status. The process includes a number of elements; a CPD audit, a skills development portfolio and finally a peer review interview. The webinar will explain each of these steps and the type of information you need to supply for the panel to consider throughout the process.

The webinar will be hosted by 2 members of the Accreditation panel, Terri Coopland and Les Heads.
