Awareness Level Courses:
Awareness level courses may be taught by individuals who have obtained a CSM or CSMC designation. It is at the discretion of the individual trainer to determine the appropriate length of time to cover these topics adequately. By issuing an NASP/IASP certificate, the CSM or CSMC is certifying to NASP/IASP that they have adequate knowledge of the subject to teach it.

The CSM or CSMC may obtain training material for these and other topics by visiting our membership page and reviewing the elements of the PREMIUM Membership where PowerPoints, student handouts, tests and other trainer materials may be found.
