Important Trainer Update - Effective January 1, 2019:

As part of its continuing effort to improve the Outreach Training Program, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will be eliminating the authorized trainer 90-day grace period. However, the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements for Trainer Update Exemption for Overseas Military Service remains in effect while the Agency evaluates the impact of this change.

Elimination of the grace period is intended to reduce confusion regarding trainer authorization status, and to encourage trainers to maintain their trainer authorization(s). OSHA urges authorized trainers to schedule registration, attendance, and completion of the relevant Trainer Update course well in advance of their trainer authorization expiration date. Authorized trainers that let their authorization lapse will be ineligible to attend a Trainer Update course, and will be required to meet all prerequisite requirements to attend the relevant Trainer course, to include having successfully completed the applicable OSHA Standards course(s) within seven calendar years of attendance at the Trainer course. Extensions of trainer authorizations that expire on or after January 1, 2019, will not be granted.

OSHA Authorized Outreach Trainers

The OSHA Outreach Training Program authorizes trainers to offer 10 and 30 hours courses in Construction, General Industry, Maritime and Disaster Site Worker Training. The UCSD OSHA Training Institute Education Center (OTIEC) utilizes an online portal for trainers to submit and receive OSHA course completion cards to distribute to their students.

How to submit an OTPR and request student cards:
  1. Upon successful completion of a trainer or trainer update course an account is established (or updated) in Storefront and an email and temporary password are sent to the trainer. If you do not receive an email please contact the Outreach Department at oti-outreach@ucsd.edu or 858-534-9283.
  2. Login into the Storefront portal.
  3. Follow these instructions to submit an OTPR on Storefront.
