CE 1103: ASP Prep Course

Based on feedback from our students and the safety community, the Continuing Education Department at CSU has developed this training course to help prepare students for the ASP Exam; all completely online.

CE 1103 Course Description

The Associate Safety Professional (ASP) is the first test required in the two-test process of becoming a Certified Safety Professional (CSP). This course will assist in preparing students for the Board of Certified Safety Professionals’ Safety Fundamentals Examination, which leads to the ASP designation.

The course itself has only a representation of ASP study questions and the “Study Guide” (workbook provided to student upon successful completion of the course) contains the bulk of the study questions. The questions used in the course represent high probability questions or questions seen regularly but there are hundreds more that can make up your 200 question test. 
Additional self-study (recommended 80+ hours upon completion of course) will be required in order to be fully qualified to pass the ASP examination. Upon completion of this course, one ASP Self Study Workbook will be provided to you as a PDF document via email. Please allow 48 hours for processing after completing the course to receive this email containing the workbook.

Students should work through these problems on their own before attempting the exam, and the course instructor is available for questions students have while working through the additional workbook.

Course Cost- $550

Note: CE courses are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid, Military Tuition Assistance or Learning Partner Discounts.

Course Length- This course is a 10 week, self-paced, open enrollment course. Once students complete each assignment in the course with a 70% or higher, they will receive a certificate of completion that will list the 3.6 CEUs earned, as well as a downloadable workbook with additional practice problems to continue your study efforts before testing. Course must be paid for in full before student is eligible to receive certificate of completion and additional digital workbook.

Students can apply for an extension if the course is not completed within the alloted 10 week time frame. If students do not complete all assignments with a 70% or higher within 10 weeks, they will be removed from the course if an extension is not applied for. Students will have unlimited access to the course material for additional studying efforts, as long as they complete all assignments with a 70% or higher in the 10 week period.

We encourage students to reach out to the instructor if they are struggling with certain concepts.
