OSHA Outreach Trainer Update Courses
HAS YOUR TRAINER CARD EXPIRED or is it EXPIRING SOON? Register for your update class now! Classes fill quickly, do not delay.
The February 2013 revised requirements clearly state you cannot teach or request cards if your status has expired:
“If a trainer’s authorization status has expired, the trainer has a 90-day grace period after their expiration date to take the update course. The 90-day grace period is designed to allow for unexpected circumstances like course cancellations, illness, and other unavoidable obligations such as jury duty. During the grace period, the trainer will be unable to conduct Outreach training and receive student course completion cards. After the grace period, a trainer’s authorization status may only be reinstated by retaking the trainer course. If a trainer’s authorization has expired, they will be unable to conduct Outreach training and receive student course completion cards. Extensions to the grace period will not be granted.”
