Are you OSHA approved?
OSHA does not approve any providers. OSHA authorizes training providers to offer online 10 and 30 hour training online. We were among the first to online OSHA Outreach courses. We now offer an OSHA accepted program provided by 360training.com, an OSHA accepted provider.
Are the 10 & 30 hour Safety Compliance courses OSHA compliant and OSHA approved?
OSHA does not approve providers or courses and therefore out course is not OSHA approved. OSHA only authorizes or accepts training vendors. OSHA.com’s 10 and 30 hour OSHA Outreach Training courses are OSHA compliant, meet the OSHA 29 CFR 1910 and OSHA 29 CFR 1926 requirements, and are OSHA accepted. Upon completion of the course, you will get a DOL Course Completion Wallet Card.
What states are your training courses valid for?
43 states do not have a training requirement. The education is voluntary. For the 7 states (NV, CT, MA, NY, MO, RI, NH) construction safety training is required and the requirements vary from state to state. Our online OSHA Outreach Training Course meets the OSHA compliance requirements.
Will I get a printable certificate upon completion?
Yes, a temporary printable certificate is immediately available upon completion of all courses provided by OSHA.com
Will I get a DOL card in the mail?
If you are taking a OSHA Outreach 10 or 30 hour Training Course, you will receive a DOL Course Completion Wallet Card in the mail in 6-8 weeks.
Is the online course equivalent to on-site classroom courses?
I’m getting other competitors offering OSHA Outreach training for $18-20 per person. Why is OSHA.com more expensive?
Students need to be wary of offers that seem too good to be true. The major providers have very similar pricing that reflects the significant costs associated with creating and supporting high quality programs.
Why is online training better than on-site training?
Two words: convenience and self-paced. Many workers are so busy or live in areas where classroom sessions are not practical. Online offers much greater convenience. The self-paced nature of online allows each student to spend more time on the topics they are not familiar with and move more quickly through those that they are. In a classroom, everyone marches through the same topics for the same amount of time.
Must I complete my course in one sitting?
No! You do not have to complete a session in one sitting. At the end of a section, you can log out and when you log back in, all of your information will be saved.
Is there a time restriction on completing the course and the survey?
Courses do not have a time restriction, except for the OSHA Outreach Training Courses. For the 10 Hour and 30 Hour OSHA Outreach Training Courses, the time to complete the course is six months.
The completion of your survey is a required portion of your course. If you do not complete the survey within three months of your course completion, your card will not be processed. The survey link is located in your end of course instructions, please complete in a timely manner so we can process your card within the 6-8 week day timeframe.
I completed the modules in the Outreach training course, why can’t I access the final exam?
The rate of time it takes for a student to complete the modules will vary by student. OSHA’s Outreach Training Program—Online Training Guidelines mandates that all students spend 10 or 30 hours in the respective courses. Any student that has spent less than the required 10 or 30 hours in the course must return to the course to review content that is key to them or visit other available course modules to meet OSHA’s timing requirement.
How do I go back and reprint my certificate of course completion?
Go to the Student Login page and log in using your username and password. Click on the certificate icon next to the course title you would like to reprint.
I have taken the 10/30 Hour OSHA Outreach Training Course. When will I receive my DOL wallet card?

Please allow sufficient time for your card to reach you through the mail. THE END OF COURSE SURVEY MUST BE SUBMITTED WITHIN 3 MONTHS OF COURSE COMPLETION OR A WALLET CARD WILL NOT BE ISSUED.
