It depends on the course and the associated OSHA training standard. Some courses have certification that expires one year after issue because OSHA stipulates an annual training requirement. Other certifications have no expiry date. We set a 3 year expiry date on 10 hour and 30 hour certifications as this is an optimal period for re-training. However, this expiration is not associated with any DOL/Outreach card as we do not provide these. Any expiry date will be clearly shown on your certificate.

Our courses do not have a lengthy final exam at the end. We use shorter quizzes at the end of each module to check and reinforce what you learned. You must pass quizzes with an 80% score to proceed through the course. You will learn everything you need to pass in each module and you can retake each quiz three (3) times. is an online business founded in 2019 to meet the growing demand for interactive, responsive safety training.

No – no online course actually meets these requirements. Ultimately, employers are responsible for all hands-on safety training. Safety education is a three-phase process and seeks to ensure employees gain three different things: adequate knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Collectively these are known as (KSAs):

  1. Instruction to gain knowledge;
  2. Hands-on practice to gain skills;
  3. Evaluation of skills on the job to determine abilities.

Our modern online learning courses can be used to satisfy the knowledge component of the training. But, those topics that require hands-on practice using equipment to gain skills (for example confined space entry and fall protection), must be taught by an employer-designated competent person for the specific type of equipment the employees will be using on the job.

To satisfy the hands-on training requirement, employers will have their employees take our online training to satisfy the knowledge component, and then finish up the hands-on component of the training in the workplace.

Whichever method is used – online, instructor led or both –  the employer is always held accountable by OSHA to ensure employees are provided opportunity to practice with the equipment in the learning environment to gain adequate skills.

After the employer is satisfied that employees have gained adequate skills, employees must be evaluated on-the-job to verify they have gained adequate abilities to properly use equipment and perform tasks.

To determine if a topic requires hands-on practice and demonstration of skills refer to OSHA’s Publication 2254, Training Requirements in OSHA Standards.
