To maintain their status as an authorized OSHA Outreach trainer for construction, they must complete the OSHA 502 trainer update course every four years.

Online OSHA 10 and 30-hour Training Courses Accepted in Connecticut
There are also OSHA-authorized online 10 and 30-hour training courses available for construction and general industry. However, you must pay close attention, as only those course providers that are specifically authorized to provide these courses can issue trainees the official DOL / OSHA 10 or 30-hour wallet cards. There are plenty of imitators out there who use deceptive fine print and “too good to be true” pricing to sell you a course that is not OSHA authorized. You can rest assured that the 10 and 30-hour online OSHA training courses offered on our website are authorized by OSHA, and are accepted in Connecticut as well as all other states and US territories.

The State of Connecticut also has a state law requiring most workers on publicly funded construction sites to possess the OSHA wallet card proving they have successfully completed the OSHA 10 hour construction training course. Our on site and online OSHA 10-hour construction training courses meet CT state requirements – Guaranteed!
