West Virginia University Extension Safety and Health hosted a graduation ceremony to honor students who completed the Certified Safety Trainer and the Certified Safety Specialist programs. WVU Extension Safety and Health has been a leader in providing professional continuing education courses since 1994 by serving as the lead organization in the National Resource Center, an OSHA Training Institute Education Center, one of 27 in the United States. 

The Certified Safety Specialist program is for students seeking to enhance their education in occupational safety and health. The Certified Safety Trainer program is an add-on to the Certified Safety Specialist program, allowing students to personally teach OSHA classes upon completion and to educate others on the hazards associated with a workplace. This program makes an individual a valuable asset to an organization seeking to train many employees.
