CHMM Program Overview
A Certified Hazardous Materials Manager (CHMM) handles, manages, or provides advice to other on hazardous materials, or situations that can involve or include these materials. A CHMM is able to perform such roles in a variety of organizations such as corporations, businesses or government. They can also work in related fields that are associated with hazardous materials such as environmental protection, security, the transportation of materials, or safety. Whenever a scenario involves hazardous materials, a certified CHMM professional can provide advice on the proper handling and management to ensure safety and compliance.
Individuals holding an IHMM certification such as CHMM enjoy enhanced earning power. The median annual base salary for certified individuals is around 20% greater than that for workers with no certification. Furthermore, an experienced certification holder can enjoy a 10% higher salary than a professional with the same experience but no certification.
The CHMM certification from IHMM recognizes your expertise and your commitment to public safety and the environment. This can open up new possibilities for you to make a difference to public health and safety, the environment, your community, and your country.
The CHMM certification acknowledges that an individual has been assessed on their knowledge, skills and abilities and demonstrates that the holder has the competency to perform the functions of the profession. This results in recognition from employers and peers, as well as earning and enhancing trust from members of the public.
