NASP Accredited Trainers Registration

NASP Accredited Trainers

Becoming an NASP Accredited Trainer is an opportunity for you to turn your expertise into excellent income. The NASP Accredited Trainer is authorized to offer the following NASP Courses:

  • Certified Safety Manager (CSM)
  • Certified Safety Manager – Construction (CSMC)
  • Certified Safety Manger – Petroleum (CSMP)
  • Associate Safety Manager (ASM)
  • Certified Environmental Manager (CEM)
  • Upon completion of our accreditation process
    • Certified Safety Director Certification Exam Prep Course
    • Master Safety Professional Certification Exam Prep Course
  • All 23 NASP Specialist Courses

Accredited Trainers (AT) will be the sole providers of NASP classroom courses in their approved geographical area. These trainers will offer NASP courses in locations and frequency as dictated by the market in their area. Both the AT and NASP will market their courses. The high trafficked NASP website and NASP’s database of over 45,000 highly directed email addresses as well as the AT’s area efforts will ensure excellent market coverage. ATs are responsible for providing suitable classrooms for their courses. All training and curricula materials are provided by NASP.

Qualification Prerequisites

All persons approved as accredited trainers must have at least three years of suitable experience in workplace safety and must have satisfactorily completed the classroom version of the CSM Course. The AT applicant must successfully complete the three day AT Course. Participants are trained on detailed NASP standards and methods of training including effective instructional approaches and the effective use of visual aids and handouts, skilled modeling of learning principles and delivery techniques, including processing and facilitation techniques, classroom set-up and management, the handling of difficult participants and proper testing methodologies.

As a part of the AT Course applicants will be evaluated on their training techniques and subject matter knowledge. Those scoring 90% or higher will be approved as Accredited NASP Trainers. Those scoring 70% to 89% will receive a conditional approval. Persons receiving full approval will then be allowed to teach all of the above courses they have successfully completed. For those with full approval all courses other than CSM and AT may be completed online at the trainer’s preference. Specialist courses are an exception as the trainer is not required to have completed the NASP version of those courses. Those receiving a conditional approval will be required to complete the classroom version of the above courses before they are allowed to teach them. Conditional approvals may be upgraded to full approval following any of the series of audits and evaluations conducted by NASP. Approved Trainers will also be allowed to market themselves as an NASP Accredited Trainer and they may use the NASP name and logo to market their instruction of any of the above courses.

In order to maintain NASP’s high standard of training, the NASP will continue to monitor the AT’s growth and development and delivery of courses as a trainer and provide feedback, or corrective action when applicable. The AT will be required to maintain certification by annual recertification as the program dictates. Once NASP’s accreditation of it’s certifications has been completed, those ATs holding Certified Safety Director (CSD) or Master Safety Professional (MSP) designations will be given preferential treatment for initial choice and future increase of their geographical coverage area.

Renewals/Recertifications and CEUs

For purposes that mandate material updates and require that training methodologies are continually assessed and updated, the AT will be required to maintain certification by attending courses that are accredited to provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every 3 years. A minimum of 1.6 CEUs annually will be required for a total of 4.8 CEUs to be reviewed on the third and final year by NASP personnel. In addition, they would be required to attend one CSM course taught by the NASP every 5 years.  This would maintain the integrity and uniformity of the standards of the NASPs training curricula.

Students who are trained by the AT will be required to renew their certification through the NASPs online course.  ATs will also be required to maintain membership per the required renewal policies.

Fees

Tuition for the Accredited Trainer Course is $1495.00. The AT’s tuition for the other courses the AT may desire to teach are the standard tuition minus 10%.

The AT determines the tuition to be charged for their course offerings. Tuition for all Professional courses except Specialist Courses would normally be $1500 to $1900. NASP successfully charges $2295.00 for these courses.

Of the tuition charged by the AT, NASP receives $595.00 per student which covers the use of NASP materials including student certificates, all student manuals and printed materials, as well as NASP marketing and support.

Specialist courses would normally be $300 to $500. NASP successfully charges $395.00. For these courses NASP receives $75.00 per student which covers the use of NASP materials as well as NASP marketing and support. All courses must comply with NASP guidelines.

How Much Can an AT Earn?
How much you could earn as an AT is dependent on a number of factors:

  1. How good a trainer are you?
    • NASP has experienced tremendous success with word of mouth marketing from its students. We have established ourselves as number one in the quality of our training. If your students see you as a stellar trainer, their recommendations will greatly enhance your success.
  2. How large is your client base?
    • Your exclusive geographical area will be approved by NASP based upon what you are able to completely and professionally service.
      • Note your service area will be based more upon population than square mileage.
    • Successful service on your part will qualify you for extended territory.
  3. How effective is your marketing?
    • NASP will market your courses through our website and our mass email blasts, but your key to success is your local marketing.
    • If your marketing is effective, your client base is large enough, and your instruction is outstanding, then you should do well.
    • These variables depend upon you, so it is not possible for us to tell you how much you could earn. But we offer this generic example:A sample offering may be as follows:
      • Certified Safety Manager (CSM) – If you successfully offer 4 courses per year with an average of 20 students per course = $1000.00 tuition X 20 students X 4 courses = $80,000.00 gross for you (after you pay NASP fees)*
      • Certified Safety Manager – Construction (CSMC) – If you successfully offer 3 courses per year with an average of 15 students per course = $1000.00 X 15 X 3 = $45,000.00 *
      • Associate Safety Manager (ASM) = If you successfully offer 4 courses per year with an average of 20 students = $700.00 X 20 X 4 = $56,000.00*
      • Certified Environmental Manager (CEM) = If you successfully offer 3 courses per year with an average of 12 students = $1000.00 X 12 X 3 = $36,000.00*
      • Certified Safety Manger – Petroleum (CSMP) = If you successfully offer 2 courses per year with an average of 15 students = $700.00 X 15 X 2 = $21,000.00*
      • Certified Safety Director Certification Exam Prep Course = If you successfully offer 2 courses per year with an average of 10 students = $700.00 X 10 X 2 = $14,000.00*
      • Master Safety Professional Certification Exam Prep Course = If you successfully offer 2 courses per year with an average of 10 students = $700.00 X 10 X 2 = $14,000.00*
      • All NASP Specialist Courses = If you successfully offer 23 Courses once per year (that is an average of one of each topic per year) at $300.00 = 23 X 1 X $300.00 = $6900.00*

 

In this example, the AT’s gross annual earnings after their payment to NASP is $272,900.00. Your net before tax would be 272,900.00 minus your cost for facilities and other course delivery costs.
