The OSHA Outreach Training Program provides training for students on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in workplaces. The courses below enable students to teach the 10- and 30-hour classes that result in OSHA Outreach Program course completion cards for their students. Some courses may be applied to the Occupational Safety and Health Department Certificate Programs.
Live online OTI Education Center courses are available!
The live online UCSD OTIEC classes will be administered with the same standards, guidelines and policies as the in-person OTIEC course offerings. Per OSHA’s guidelines for live online courses, students are required to have video capabilities and must be visible at all times to the instructor and facilitator during the class. Unfortunately, if a student cannot comply with this requirement, they will not be able to attend the class. Students are required to attend all days and times in order to receive a course completion certificate and/or trainer card. Students' participation, attendance and exam monitoring will be documented. Early registration is highly recommended. Enrollment for each class will close one week prior to the start date.
These courses are listed as "Hybrid" in the section offerings. "Hybrid" refers to the combination of the Canvas and Zoom platforms. Although the classes will be taught live via scheduled Zoom meetings, Canvas provides administrative support. For example, it will provide students access to required forms as well as the course materials.
These live online classes are available to anyone in OSHA Region IX (Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Pacific Territories and American Samoa). Additionally, if you are a current Outreach Trainer with UCSD, regardless of your residence, you are still eligible to attend a Trainer Update Course.
Please note that the OSHA 502, OSHA 503, OSHA 5402, OSHA 5029 (Cal/OSHA) and OSHA 5039 (Cal/OSHA) are the only trainer courses allowed by OSHA to be taught live online.
