Three weeks ago, the company that I have been with for nearing 40 years did away with my safety position and laid me off, telling me that I will never be back. I have NEVER drawn unemployment in my life and had signed up but still wanted to go back to work ASAP.

I called one company and mentioned that I was laid off and within 10 minutes had a job in my field of safety, without even having to fill out an application or send a résumé. What they saw was the list of WSO certifications on an email I sent them a few months back, which sealed the deal.

The moral of the story?
WSO Certifications don’t cost … they pay!
To top this off, it’s 15 minutes from home.

Thank you, World Safety Organization!
