Is It Time for an Outreach Trainer Update Course?
Stop What You're Doing! and find a class!
If your expiration date is coming up anytime from March 2020 through September 2020 , take time to find a class now! ( OSHA #502 for Construction ; OSHA #503 for General Industry; OSHA #5402 Maritime ). Why? Because if you pass your expiration date, you are no longer a trainer. Any trainer who allows their authorization to expire, must meet the same prerequisite requirements as everyone else enrolling in the trainer course, i.e. standards course completion within the last 7 years  ( Construction 510 General Industry 511 ), and a  prerequisite verification fo rm   that documents 5 years of safety experience.

Once you have attended update training, it is your responsibility to update your information in the portal. Upload new front and back photos (jpg) of your card and enter your new expiration date.

You DO need to upload images of your new card (front and back jpg photos)and put in your new expiration date. If you don't update in the portal, you will find that you cannot get in to file reports -- it will assume you are expired!
