Education and Research Centers (ERCs)

Through university-based Education and Research Centers (ERCs), NIOSH supports academic degree programs and research training opportunities in the core areas of industrial hygiene, occupational health nursing, occupational medicine, and occupational safety, plus specialized areas relevant to the occupational safety and health field. In addition to the academic training programs, NIOSH supports ERC short-term continuing education (CE) programs for occupational safety and health professionals, and others with worker safety and health responsibilities. A current CE course schedule for all NIOSH Education and Research Centers can be accessed at the ERC-hosted web site. On this ERC-hosted site you can access lists of the courses, seminars, and workshops offered at ERCs across the country. Search by topic, by program brochure.

Please see the ERC Annual Reports for more information on ERC activities.
