Occupational Hygiene Training Association

The AIOH is an active member of the Occupational Hygiene Training Association (OHTA) and is committed to the development and implementation of the OHTA international training and qualifications framework.

The OHTA was formed to promote better standards of occupational hygiene practice throughout the world. The OHTA develops training materials which are made freely available for use by students and training providers. The OHTA also promotes an international qualifications framework so that all hygienists are trained to a consistent high standard that is recognised in all participating countries.

We encourage, promote and support the use of OHTA modules and qualifications in Australia and the Asia/Pacific region. Accredited standalone courses such as our Basic Principles of Occupational Hygiene course and other OHTA courses provide alternative education options for our members.
