503 Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers

When registering for an update course, include a front and back copy of your current trainer card with the registration form.In addition, each applicant for a trainer update must send in pages 1 & 5 of a  Prerequisite Verification Form. On page 1 complete through item #6, then skip to item #41 on page 5. Check the appropriate box and remember to sign the Prerequisite Verification Form at item #43 on that same page.


NOTICE: As part of its continuing effort to improve the Outreach Training Program, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration  (OSHA) has eliminated the authorized trainer “90-day grace period” described in Sections III.B.1.,2, and 4 of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements. This change is included in the 2019 revisions of the OSHA Outreach Training Program Requirements and applicable sections of each Industry Procedures document, and became effective January 1, 2019. General Industry Outreach Trainers who do not successfully complete OSHA #503 Update Course for General Industry Outreach Trainers prior to their expiration date, will need to begin the process again, completing a Prerequisite Verification Form and retaking the OSHA #501 Trainer Course in OSHA Standards for General Industry. (If the prerequisite OSHA #511 OSHA Standards for General Industry is older than seven years, that will also need to be retaken.)


PREREQUISITE: Course 501/503. A copy (front and back) of your current Trainer Card must accompany the registration form.
