OSHA offers both a 10 hour OSHA training and a 30 hour OSHA training course. While you can take an in-person course, you also have the option for choosing to get the training you need online. When you are looking for an online OSHA training course, consider several different factors, including the provider of the course, the price, the ease of accessibility and customer experience.
The first element you should research is the provider of the course. You want to complete the online OSHA training with a reputable and creditable provider. This ensures that the information you are receiving is correct, valid and useful. Review the curriculum to make sure that the topics you need are covered. You should also look for providers that offer ongoing support, such as 24/7 toll-free phone number or online chat service, in case you have a problem or question in the middle of the night or day, or whenever you are online completing the training.
The cost of online OSHA training is another factor to consider. In general, one online training provider is offering the same course as another online training provider. If the curriculum is equal, you want to choose the most cost effective training course in which to enroll and complete the training you need.
Ease of accessibility relates to how you access the course. Typically, with an online OSHA training course, you receive a username and password to log in to the provider’s website when it is time to train. Website design, layout and navigation of the site should be easy and quick. The easier it is for you to obtain the training you need, the easier and faster it will be for you to complete the training.
Finally, one of the best ways to evaluate the online training provider is to see what others that have completed the course are saying. Read the customer testimonials on the site of the training provider. You should also conduct some research of your own. Use your favorite search engine to search for the online provider. Read what customers are saying on forums, blog comments and on other websites about each of the online training providers you are considering.
Once you gather all of this information about the online OSHA training courses, you can then narrow down your choices. The one program that fits all of your requirements is the best program for you.
