Who are Ergonomists?









If a person has the appropriate academic background to be an ergonomist, they can apply to be recognized as an Associate Ergonomist (AE). After achieving a set amount of relevant professional experience, they can apply to upgrade their designation to a Canadian Certified Professional Ergonomist (CCPE). These designations help ensure that all those wishing to practice as ergonomists have the academic and practical experience to competently serve the public.
