EHAC Accreditation requires broad training in 23 programmatic areas of Environmental Health & Safety, which may include Air Quality Control, Food Protection, Hazardous Materials, and Water Quality, with in-depth training in four of these technical areas. CMU offers in-depth coursework in 10 of the 23 programmatic areas. Interested students should meet with the Environmental Health & Safety Program Director, Dr. Rebecca Uzarski, as early as possible to assist with course scheduling in the four technical areas and to identify the appropriate prerequisite courses related to the student's choice of technical area.
