Certification has become increasingly important in the ergonomics practitioner field. Many employers seek to hire a certified professional ergonomist, knowing that the job candidate has a recognized baseline of knowledge and competence. In a crowded field of practitioners, certified individuals distinguish themselves from others.
The Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE) is an independent, non-profit organization providing professional certification for ergonomic practitioners demonstrating expertise and a comprehensive understanding of ergonomics and human factors. They offer several professional certification credential programs.
