Completion of the Associate of Applied Science degree in OSHT meets the educational requirement to sit for the ASP/CSP certification exams. Please note: The curriculum for the AAS degree in OSHT does not necessarily encompass all topics covered on the STS/CHST/OHST/ASP/CSP exams, and Trinidad State does not guarantee students will pass any of these exams. It is highly recommended that students attend an ASP/CSP preparatory workshop or utilize other study resources prior to sitting for the exam. Sample exams and worksheets may be obtained via the BCSP web site.

Because the Trinidad State OSHT AAS degree program is accredited by ABET, the BCSP will waive the application fee only (not the examination fee) for certification exams for students having recently completed the AAS degree. For more information, contact the BSCP.
