CUSP Certification


About the Certified Utility Safety Professional Credential

The Certified Utility Safety Professional certification program is the only program that offers safety credentials to utilities, related contractors and communication providers. It is designed to provide a career path and individual growth for employees and increased value for employers.

In partnership, employers and employees promote a culture where safe utility work practices are the standard.

The CUSP credential is accredited by the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI).

The ISPI accreditation provides an independent, third-party validation of the quality and effectiveness of the CUSP credential by a respected, and trusted world leader in performance improvement and workplace productivity. It affirms the role of the CUSP credential in creating a safe and productive utility workplace.
