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.
And yes - the online course is equivalent to an on-site classroom course.

 

 

I completed the Outreach training course, why can’t I access the final exam?

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.

Is there a time restriction on completing a 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.
