Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I get CEUs for this course?

    Yes, if you are a Physical Therapist in California, this course is now approved for 1.6 CEUs. Other specialities/professional disciplines should be able to submit for individual credit but it is important for you to contact your state licensing board or professional credentialing board for information regarding policies and the amount of continuing education credits needed.

  • How many hours is this course?

    The Basic course is designed to be presented live for 60-90 minutes once a week for 8 weeks (8 hours approximately). With small group coaching every 2-weeks for one hour each (4 hours total). Add homework and the Basic course is estimated to take about 16 hours to earn a Certificate of Completion. Advanced and Elite enrollment will add additional 2-6 hours of mentoring to estimated course time, not including your time in completing evaluations.

  • What date and time does the course take place?

    The TTEE course will be presented live on Zoom and is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 14 at 11:00am-12:00pm followed by (optional) Q&A session for 15-30 minutes. We will do our best to stay on schedule. All sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the learning portal within 12-24 hours of the session so you can catch up on what you missed. The last session will be on March 6, 2020.

  • When is the small group coaching?

    Four small group coaching sessions are included and will also take place on Zoom. These are offered as an adjunct to the Tuesday lessons. They are scheduled every 2 weeks from 11am -12pm (tentatively). Your attendance is strongly encouraged but if you can't make it, a recording will be uploaded to the training portal. During this time, we will discuss assignments, case studies, questions, look at products and address other timely issues you might have. This is a great time to use my expertise to help you with anything ergo related you need assistance with so we can all benefit.

  • Can I take the Basic course and earn my COESp later?

    Yes, provided you enroll in the certificate program within 12 months of your training registration. Contact us for pricing if you want to be certified as a COESp after you earn your Certificate of Completion.

  • Can the Train the Ergonomics Evaluator be presented live and onsite for a company to develop a team of ergonomic evaluators?

    Yes, in the past we always did the training live and for clients on location. If you want to bring this course in-house, give us a call to work out the details for you.

  • Is there a satisfaction guarantee?

    We stand behind our training and products 100% because we know they work when you take action and use them in the way intended. Based on our decades of experience in the ergonomics industry, we are confident that if you complete the training, follow the steps to use the Worksite International System of Ergonomic Evaluation, pass your Knowledge Exams and implement the advice of your coach, then you will be better trained than you are today!

Our Students Say It Best!

Solve Workers Concerns

Iris Yunxia W., MPH, CIH, CHMM Global Occupational Health & Safety Program Manager Real Estate Operations

Train the Ergonomics Evaluator Training taught me how to systematically and logically conduct ergonomic evaluations by using Anthropometrics to measure and match the work area to the worker, identify and recommend proper workstation set ups for different users in different work environment. The Certification and Mentorship program allowed me to use real world examples as cases to learn how to solve real workers concerns and provide solutions. Alison is very knowledgeable, patient, and a sincere mentor. I will recommend this program to everyone who has an interest or need to conduct ergonomic evaluation.

Confident to Perform Evaluations

Jenny P., West Valley Staffing

Alison is very professional and you can really tell this is her passion! I have learned a great deal from her and can walk away saying i feel confident in addressing ergonomic needs!

A Valuable Experience

Stephen W. H., MS, CIH, CSP, CLSO, FAIHATM Occupational Health, Safety and Ergonomics Advisor

I am very glad to have had the opportunity to take the Train the Ergonomics Evaluator Course. It has been a valuable experience that has helped me improve the quality of our office ergonomic assessments. The handout materials are of excellent quality, and I will be referring to them moving forward. I think that the certification is very important -- not because of the certification itself -- but because obtaining it requires one to put into practice what one has learned during the course.

Streamline Documentation

Stacy V., Mgr, Environmental Health & Safety Corporate Environmental Health & Safety

This course provided a practical approach to office ergonomics that can be applied immediately after the course. The 1:1 mentoring time with Alison is very valuable when reviewing your ergonomic evaluations. It has forced me to look at how I approach certain solutions, but even more importantly, has encouraged me to streamline my documentation.
