After completing the training, you will need to upload your certificate to EHS using the upload tool below. After EHS receives your “Certificate of Completion”, full access will be granted to your account within 24 business hours.

The certificate will be located in the “My Learning” page of “Bridge” (

Please Note: The creator of the Bridge application updated  the “My Learning” page so everything is listed in a “grid” view which hides the certificates that you have earned.  To change back to the list view, so you may download, print or email your certificates, perform the following steps.

1) in the right hand side of the page, right below the “export transcript” is a drop down menu. It is set at “grid”

2) click on the down arrow next to “grid” and change it to “list”.  This will change the “my learning”  page back to the list view.

3) Scroll down to the “completed” section and find the “Chemical Hygiene” training, in the same line that has the completion date in red it will say “view certificate”

This is where you can download your certificate.
