Continuing Ed

Thank you for your interest in utilizing the OSHA Training Institute Education Center at Volunteer State Community College to become an OSHA Authorized Outreach Trainer.  As you may know OSHA’s Outreach Training Program Requirements states:

Becoming an Outreach Training Program Trainer.

“To become an Outreach Training Program trainer, an individual must meet the prerequisites and complete the applicable industry trainer course through an Authorizing Training Organization.  See the specific industry program procedures for detailed information.  Trainer course prerequisites include components for both industry-specific safety and health experience and training in OSHA standards for that industry.  These are separate components.  Industry experience cannot be used to fulfill or replace the training prerequisite component.  OSHA does not waive the training prerequisite component.”

In order to register for an OSHA Trainer course (OSHA# 500/501/5400/5600) submit completed Prerequisite Verification Form (PVF), and, a copy of your course completion certificate(s) for the applicable OSHA courses (see separate Industry Procedures for Construction, General Industry, Maritime, and Disaster Site Worker) to osha@volstate.edu.

Your PVF must delineate detailed information regarding your industry-specific safety related Job Duties and Safety Activities.  In other words, try to describe your safety related job duties and safety activities without using the word "Safety".

Safety related experience must be detailed since the PVF document is a record of safety experience and will be carefully reviewed to determine whether eligibility requirements have been met.
