Columbia Basin College’s Industrial Health and Safety Technology AAS Degree Program

Posted: Jan 22, 2018

Columbia Basin College’s Industrial Health and Safety Technology AAS degree program has been approved and is now accepting students. The first IHST program course is set for next fall, but students can begin taking classes right away to complete their General Education.

Please help us pass the word out to those with High School students and others interested in a Health and Safety career. Those with CSP’s and CIH’s might consider taking a class or two to earn points toward their recertification.
