The University of Fredericton has launched an Associate Degree in Occupational Health and Safety (AOHS).

The program is fully accredited and is offered fully online to provide students with the flexibility to work while they attend school. “When we applied for an Associate Degree in Occupational Health and Safety, it was because we knew that there was a significant need for more degree-level OHS education,” said Dr Sheri McKillop, VP of Academics at UFred. “We are so pleased to now have this credential available for OHS practitioners across Canada and around the world.” UFred (NB)
