OSHA Education Center Frequently Asked Questions

What Are OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers?

OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers are a national network of nonprofit organizations authorized by OSHA to deliver occupational safety and health training to public and private sector workers, supervisors and employers. Only courses validated by the OTI Education Centers are able to provide Department of Labor OSHA 10-Hour and 30-Hour Cards.

Most employers only require certificates of completion as proof of training and do not need official DOL cards. Your employer and state laws will identify whether you need an official DOL OSHA card or not.

Is OSHA Training Mandatory?

While all OSHA training courses are voluntary, some courses—like the OSHA 10-Hour Construction and General Industry Training—are required by certain states, like New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Missouri and Nevada. These states have mandated laws that require workers to successfully complete the 10-hour training before working on a job site.

Some employers in construction and general industry will also make OSHA training mandatory for new employees before they begin working. Many times, you will only need proof of course completion and not a Department of Labor OSHA 10-hour or 30-hour card.
