I wanted to let Will Pate know that I sat for the CHMM exam and I passed! I took his online CHMM review course in the Spring of 2016. This was an excellent class! Even after waiting almost a year after completing the review course I went back and listened to each lecture over again, took lots of note cards from this lectures, used the Bowen CHMM app on my iPhone, read the IHMM book, and studied DataChem CHMM Prep extensively. I would highly recommend this review course for anyone planning to sit for the CHMM. Thanks Will for a GREAT class.

I am happy to say I passed my exam! This is my second time taking it so the pressure was on. I want to thank Bowen EHS for all their help and support. I started a new job a week before my first try at the exam and with the stress of house selling and house hunting, my exam results showed. I retook the CHMM online review, studied using the CHMM Datachem software and reviewed my problem areas from the first exam. I am excited to put this chapter behind me. Thank you and best of luck to anyone else planning to take the exam!

Please tell Mr. Pate that I passed the CHMM exam. I was in his last CHMM class and listened to the recordings since I couldn't make the scheduled live classroom hours. Without his class I would not have done well....tell him thanks for me.

I just completed the 2016-08 CHMM review course with Will Pate and took the exam one week later. I was nervous to push the submit exam button, but the message came up that I passed! Big thanks to Will for teaching a great review course. Many topics from the review course helped with my success on this exam. I would recommend for others to begin making your own flash cards right away when you are taking the review course. Review that content frequently. There are a lot of things to have memorized for this exam. Big thanks to Will and Bowen EHS! :)

I took the CHMM test yesterday and it stated that I passed. It could take up to three weeks to get the actual grade. I want to thank Bowen and all of my class members for their help.

I wanted to let you know that I passed my CHMM test in large part thanks to your great assistance! I've recommended Bowen EHS to another colleague in our office for his CIH prep. One other thing I thought I'd relay is that in my situation, the calculator that Bowen sent with the packet was not allowed at my test site. They enforced the description of a 4-function calculator strictly (add, subtract, multi, divide). It turned out to not be an issue, since there was also a calculator function on the computer screen offered as a part of my test. My test was offered through Kryterion if that matters. The calculator was hardly necessary, but thought I'd relay this info in case it helps to streamline the process for others. (***Instructor response: Other clients have used our calculator, and I used it too when I became a CHMM, so the proctor was absolutely incorrect in denying him the use.)

Just took the CHMM and passed showed on the screen upon completion. The test was not too difficult had some general chemistry questions, a lot of RCRA, DOT and Waste Water management. More than several question required multiple answers and had more than several math questions pertaining to Occupational Health . A basic calculator was provided on the test screen but, I used the calculator provided to me from Bowen EHS. Formulas were not given. The math questions were not lengthy and were not difficult. I will still have to wait about 3 weeks before receiving my official results. Just knowing I passed, I can wait for the official certification with ID number. The Bowen EHS study course in conjunction with the Managing Hazardous Materials book was enough to pass. I did not find the Datachem prep material to be helpful. Thank you to my instructor (William Pate) and to Bowen EHS for helping me achieve this goal!

I took and passed the CHMM exam this morning. Thanks for all your help, I'm quite sure there is no way I would have passed the test without the Bowen prep course.

Thank you so much for everything! It was truly due to your lectures, that I passed. The recordings are essential to studying. You can pause and create note cards, self tests, and notes as you go through each lecture.  I used your final as some of my final test prep and went through most of the questions on the website. The website has been such an asset to me.
