NASP/IASP Trainer Resources:

Issuing and Requesting NASP/IASP Diplomas and Pocket Cards


Only those trainers holding the CSM are authorized to request and issue NASP/IASP diplomas and pocket cards to their students for any course in which their CSM authorization allows or in which they hold an NASP/IASP technician level certification, including those listed here.


Trainer reports are submitted by logging into the Client Area. If you are authorized to submit course reports, you will be provided access to a Trainer Area where you can submit new course reports. This will automatically request certificates and cards for students who have completed courses. If you log in and are not provided access to a Trainer Area, please contact us for assistance.


The diplomas and cards are printed by NASP/IASP with the heading of “National Association of Safety Professionals” and the NASP logo, unless the trainer requests an IASP certificate. Your students’ names, as well as the course name, are included on the certificate and card. The certificate includes your trainer certification number and a blank for you to personally sign each student’s certificate. The certificates/cards cost $20 per student per course plus shipping and handling.

 

Fee Structure for CSMs issuing NASP/IASP Certificates


NASP/IASP does not set tuition on individual courses taught by a Certified Safety Manager. A CSM may charge whatever tuition that his local market can support. However, if a CSM wishes to issue NASP/IASP Certificates and Cards to his students, there will be a processing charge for each student taking each course based on a standard flat fee.

 

The fee structure is as follows and does not include shipping and handling:

  • Safety Awareness Courses - $20.00 per student includes NASP/IASP Certificate and Card

  • NASP/IASP Technician Level Courses - $55.00 per student includes NASP/IASP Certificate and Card
