Become a Ergonomics Process Specialist in three easy steps.

CEPS® was designed for employees responsible for ergonomics at their company. The content was developed to teach applied ergonomics and educate employees on both the technical and implementation aspects of an ergonomics process. Candidates must be employed by the company implementing the ergonomics process. Utilization of the materials and tools to consult or distribute is not permitted.



Through our online certification course you will complete a minimum of 16 hours of training. The training consists of both classroom content and hands-on application. The training must be completed by an Ergo-ology employed ergonomist.

The course includes:

  • Physical demands of work and cumulative trauma of soft tissue
  • Tactical and strategic approaches to implementing ergonomics processes
  • Micro/macro-ergonomic process methods
  • Technical knowledge including anthropometry, biomechanics, functional anatomy, impact of physical stress
  • Technical knowledge of engineering design considerations including, principals, guidelines, standards for equipment, tools, physical layouts (space, lighting, noise)
  • Usability and reliability
  • Ergonomic solution implementation methods and regulations of job design, engineering controls and administrative guidelines.
  • Physical measures and psychophysical/subjective measure
  • Risk screening and assessment tools and testing situations
  • Business considerations for prioritizing ergonomics opportunity
  • Validating implementation of solutions (metrics driven approaches)



Once the course is successfully completed, you will demonstrate your knowledge through our examination process.

In order to develop a credible and valid examination, questions follow widely accepted standards and regulations such as the Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures, EEOC, 1978. They may also be accredited by a third party to the standards, outlined under ISO/IEC 17-24:2012, which details the general requirements for personnel certification. Testing questions have been developed by professional ergonomists who have successfully completed the CEPS® program.



The third step of your certification process is demonstrated through a real-life project application.
