"How did the CIH designation make a difference in my life? For me, the CIH credential has repeatedly changed my life for the better, both personally and professionally. Going through the process of studying for and passing the examination is very satisfying and provides me with the knowledge and self-confidence that I had not previously had.

Over the years I received four promotions and associated pay raises (once I received a 70% boost in annual wages). When I first attained the CIH designation, I also received a promotion at work, becoming a supervisor with expanded job functions and with associated increase in earnings. Mostly because of my CIH designation, I accepted a new management position with a different organization. I repeated this process twice more in the next decade. Increased pay is always good, but the best part was the confidence I received. In this line of work, a 'CIH' behind your name is best to reassure bosses, co-workers, and the public.

The CIH designation will get you noticed, cause your resume to rise to the top and keep you very marketable. The CIH credential gives me poise and shared experience with colleagues at business meetings and professional organization events. This provides a way to connect with contemporaries and make new friends. The CIH credential was a leading factor in not only attaining my current position, but has re-invigorated my presence in the industrial hygiene profession. This allows me to grow further. For you, attaining the CIH will open doors and allow further grow in your career."
