The Online OSHA Confined Space Entry Training  Course for General Industry offered on our website is the training course you need if you work in or around confined spaces. This includes training for entrants, entry supervisors, attendants, and even rescue personnel. Make no mistake, this is not one of those short "awareness-level" courses that are offered on those other training providers' websites. This is a comprehensive confined space entry training course that will take a total of six to eight hours to complete. However, you do not have to complete this training all at one sitting; you have the option of logging in and out of the course whenever you want. There are no prerequisites required to take the online confined space training course. 

Who Should Take the Online Confined Space Entry Training Course for General Industry?

The OSHA permit-required confined space entry standard found at OSHA 29 CFR 1910.146 requires workers involved with all phases of entry into permit-required confined spaces receive training. Workers must also receive additional training or instruction from their employer, where needed, to cover their site-specific policies and procedures as well as any instruction that may be needed on the company's tools and equipment used during confined space entry work conducted at their work site.

How the Online Confined Space Training Course for General Industry Works

This online confined space training course is designed to be taken by one trainee. Companies and organizations wishing to have multiple people take our online confined space entry course must purchase a separate course for each trainee (contact us for group discount rates if you have multiple trainees to register). Trainees will be able to begin training within a matter of minutes after they are registered for their online confined space training course. To make sure the trainee is at the computer throughout the course, the student is prompted to click an arrow to advance through the course each time a section is completed. The course is also narrated, so the student must use a computer equipped with speakers or they must plug in headphones or ear-buds so they can hear the narration. 

One of the major benefits of taking our online training course is the trainee may log out of their online training course at any time during their training session, and can log back in later to resume training where they left off, even from a different computer or tablet. Students are allotted up to six full months to complete their course, but they can certainly complete it much quicker (even in a single day) since the course is available for them to take 24/7/365.
