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.
