During this complicated time in history, we ask that students enrolling in OSHA courses track state and local Covid-19 requirements for planning purposes. If courses are moved or cancelled, students may request to be moved to a different course location/dates or online within New England, Region 1, or receive tuition reimbursement.
Enrollment in the midst of a pandemic isn’t a guarantee the course will run if a state or locality changes the Covid rules of engagement. We suggest checking into trip/travel insurance and cancellation policies for hotels, car rental and/or airfare. This is particularly important planning during the pandemic, as situations are known to change.
Registration and Tuition:

OTI Education Center instructors check student ID in the classroom by matching student name to a valid government ID.
