FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 13, 2010
(Washington, D.C.)–Don’t let your OSHA 500 instructor accreditation lapse! If you are an authorized instructor for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) 10- and 30-hour courses and need to renew your teaching credential, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF) has just the course for you–the 502 “Update for Construction Industry Outreach Trainers” class, scheduled October 26-28 in the Nation’s Capital.
For construction, transportation, safety, compliance and management professionals–OSHA training is critically important. If you have attended an “OSHA 500” course, you must take an update course every four years to keep your credential current.
Under direction from the National Resource Center for OSHA Training, the ARTBA-TDF program is specifically focused on hazards facing heavy/highway construction industry workers. The course will renew an instructor’s OSHA 500 “Train the Trainer” accreditation and allow participants to continue to teach OSHA 10- and 30-Hour courses. Participants will also take home comprehensive instructor guides, student books and training aids, a set of “toolbox talk” materials, and educational posters. These resources will arm course graduates with the materials and skills they need to begin conducting their own on-site employee training courses.
Information and registration materials are available by contacting ARTBA’s Laura Spitz at 202-289-4434 or [email protected]. Registration is also available under the “events” section of www.artba.org. The course will be held in Washington, D.C., and is available to ARTBA members for $1,299 or non-members at $1,499.
Established in 1985, the ARTBA Transportation Development Foundation (ARTBA-TDF ®) is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt entity designed to support research, education and public awareness.
