Why Certification?

Both individuals and companies benefit from certification of personnel who perform safety-critical work. Such work includes process hazard analyses (PHAs), layers of protection analysis (LOPA), dust hazard analysis (DHA) and audits.

In most professions, becoming certified is an increasingly important and recognized measure of competence. While certification is not a license to practice, it does indicate that you have achieved a predefined minimum standard. Whether you plan to apply for a promotion or a position with a new employer, or simply want to enhance your credentials, being a Primacert certified professional adds to your value as an employee.
