The National Center for Environmental Safety and Health Education is proud to work with Eastern New Mexico University in Roswell New Mexico (ENMUR) in providing quality safety, health, and environmental education to both in-class and on-line students throughout the country and abroad.
Students can take classes both on-line or in class while pursuing their degree in Occupational Safety Engineering and Environmental Management Technologies. Students are also able to transfer classes and coursework from other approved organizations such as the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and third party providers while at ENMUR.
In addition to the Associate’s of Applied Science degree, those interested in certifications or a single class can take classes throughout the year. ENMUR now offers customized training both on-campus or at company locations throughout the United States.

ENMUR offers both degrees in Occupational Safety Engineering and Environmental Management as well as two entry certificates and four different certifications:
• Safety Trained Technician certificate -Level 1
• Safety Trained Manager certificate
• Certified Occupational Safety Technician (COST)
• Certified Occupational Safety and Health Specialist (COSHS)
• Certified Occupational Safety and Environmental Technician (COSET)
• Certified Occupational Safety and Health Trainer (COSHT) Jan 2016
• AAS – Occupational Safety Engineering and Environmental Management

* Many of the certificates or certifications can be completed within one semester (8-16 weeks) at ENMUR either on-line, in-class, or a combination of the two.

Classes or training taken from the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) or other recognized and approved third party trainers can be applied towards attaining a degree or certification at ENMUR. Credits are awarded after a review of the coursework and admittance to the ENMUR Safety program.

OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY ENGINEERING AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGIES

The occupational safety engineering and environmental management field is evolving. More and more companies seek out qualified individuals to develop and maintain their safety programs. One field in particular (oil and gas) has seen an exponential growth across the United States. The discovery of shale deposits and the expansion of population in these areas are expected to continue.
Surveys indicate persons trained in all aspects of occupational safety and environmental management, which includes hazard identification, accident investigation, and regulatory compliance, are in demand for years to come. Safety engineers and environmental managers are highly paid top-level executives and professionals. Many times, they are the sole individual responsible for development of programs at a company.
Not only is career growth in this field expected to rise, the pay for safety and environmental professionals is above average on both national and statewide scales. Graduates from certificate and degree programs earn top pay when compared to other two-year and four-year professions. Many graduates seek employment with government agencies and /or corporate entities while others with entrepreneurial spirit start safety and health consulting businesses throughout the United States. Graduates of certificate and degree programs gain the knowledge needed to become Certified Safety Professionals (CSP) responsible for establishing or maintaining a safety management system.

Coursework mirrors elements needed to successfully pass the CSP and the other national safety or environmental certifications and exam.
In meeting the industry demands for qualified safety workers, supervisors, and managers, ENMU-Roswell has created new paths of professionalism that can be accomplished in as little as one semester or can be built upon until the student reaches the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Occupational Safety Engineering and Environmental Management Technologies. Students are encouraged to follow the professionalism pathway in order to move through classes in the fastest manner.
Students are also encouraged to submit qualified training certificates such as those from OSHA Education Centers, Texas A & M (TEEX), military training, and/or certified safety courses to see if courses already taken can be substituted for other required classes. Technical electives for coursework (when allowed) include courses taken from industry and/or other accredited training sources recognized as approved training courses for employees. Courses taken outside of ENMU-Roswell will need to be approved as equivalent before being accepted. Electives must be within the same course of study to be considered.
