The Electrical Transmission and Distribution (ET&D) Partnership conceived of and subsequently developed the OSHA Electrical Construction Industry Outreach training course with the goal of producing non-traditional industry training tailored toward employees involved with the construction and maintenance of power transmission and distribution systems.
Individuals seeking authorization to deliver the ET&D partnership versions of the 10- and 20-hour Construction Outreach Training Program classes must fulfill the following requirements:
1. Be a current OSHA-authorized Construction Outreach Training Program trainer in good standing.
2. Complete the ET&D Partnership Train-the-Trainer class either by attending an ET&D Partnership sponsored event or by being trained by a trainer having completed an ET&D Partnership sponsored training event.
3. Only trainers that are full-time employees of a partnership member company are eligible to conduct the ET&D 10 and/or 20-hour courses. Trainers who leave their ET&D Partnership member organization must contact the ET&D Partnership and advise them of their departure.
