The ABIH recently announced that beginning January 1, 2015, CM credit for other professional certifications (like the CSP) can only be claimed using the rules for IH-Related exams in Category 7.

What does this mean for you?

If you currently hold the CIH and you sit for AND pass an IH-related certification exam by December 31, 2014, you will earn the maximum CM credit toward your CIH recertification. If you wait, the credit earned will be reduced dramatically.

Beginning January 1, 2015, CM credit will be based on the maximum allowed time for the exam. If passed, you will be able to claim 0.167 point per hour of exam.

See the below chart:

Name Description
Institute of Hazardous Materials Management The IHMM, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1984, has been protecting the environment and the public's health, safety, and security through the administration of credentials recognizing professionals who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge, expertise, and excellence in the management of hazardous materials.
The Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals™  The AHMP, formerly the Academy of Certified Hazardous Materials Managers, Inc. (ACHMM) is a professional association with a membership of more than 3,000 of the nation's leading experts in environmental, health, safety and security management. AHMP is the only national organization devoted to the professional advancement of the hazardous materials management field.

This book has two main sections. The first covers the regulatory framework dealing with hazardous materials, and the second is focused on programs for reducing risk and liability. It's a great information for test preparation as well as ongoing on-the-job.  By Robert Jaffin.

Back in the 1980s, these authors introduced their copyrighted Eight-Step Process for managing hazmat incidents. Plenty has changed since then, which is why they're up to their fourth edition. It's a good read. By Gregory Noll and three other authors.

You'll find this one to be a bit less expensive, compared with other references. No, it's not everything you need to know, but it's a great guide to the chemistry that emergency responders need to know, and the author doesn't assume that you have some sort of scientific Ph.D.  By Eugene Meyer.


This is billed as a "one-stop science, regulatory and management technical reference text." Be sure to pick up the latest edition so that you'll be up to date on the most recent regulatory changes. Published by the Alliance of Hazardous Materials Professionals (AHMP).

Join us for an overview of the history of silica exposure and its regulations in the United States. The provisions of the new proposed OSHA standard and the timeline for the implementation of this new standard will also be discussed..
