OSHA Training Institutes Announced
From OSHA’s Office of Outreach Services –
OSHA has announced the renewal of four new OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers and the renewal of 24 existing OTI Education Centers. OTI Education Centers offer training courses on OSHA standards and other occupational safety and health issues around the country. They are also the principal distribution channel for OSHA Outreach Training Program trainer courses. Qualified individuals who complete a one-week OSHA trainer course are authorized to teach 10-hour or 30-hour courses on safety and health hazards.
The new OSHA Education Centers were selected through a national competition. OSHA provides no funding to the OTI Education Centers, which support their OSHA training through tuition and fees and provide their own instructors and facilities.
