In-person class size is limited to 40 participants to enhance each attendee’s learning experience and ensure an effective student/instructor ratio. This course is ideally suited for participants with 1-7 years of safety industry experience. Attendees must be present for all scheduled days and times, complete all course work, and successfully pass the competency exam to earn the QSSP designation. Exam retakes cost $250 per student. This course will include an OSHA30 card. QSSP in-person also includes continental breakfast and lunch at the hosting hotel.

QSSP Designation requirements: Students must complete all course hours, course work, and score a 70% or higher on the competency test. Certificates will be awarded to participants who have two or more years of safety sales or marketing experience and who successfully attend and pass the QSSP Program.

Those who have less than 2 years of experience still benefit from attending and passing the QSSP program because they can utilize their increased knowledge to better communicate with customers in a consultative manner on a variety of safety topics. The QSSP designation will be awarded after 2 years of experience as approved by ISEA. The QSSP designation represents a safety sales professional who has foundational safety knowledge combined with industry experience.


Re-designation: To maintain an active QSSP certification, every 3 years students must complete a QSSP redesignation course, as well as 5 hours of continuing education in health or safety (to be completed between the after the current certificate’s issuance date and prior to the expiration date. Evidence of this must be submitted at the time of redesignation.)
