     Program Testimonial

    Before I found SSM’s Health and Safety Professional (HSP) Certificate Program, I was struggling to find safety based training that I trusted within Manitoba. Being on the leading edge of health and safety training, SSM was an organization I knew I could trust.

    SSM’s professional conduct, knowledge in the subject area and up-to-date information about provincial legislation, combined with the best practical hands-on experience, provided me with theory and practical knowledge that has enhanced my professional career.

    Many of the courses are offered throughout the year and SSM easily accommodated my work schedule while completing the program. I was also able to use previous SSM courses towards the certificate, which helped me to complete the program quickly.
