At least three of the courses, including the final two, must be completed through the UA OTI-EC. Courses taken through the OSHA Training Institute in Chicago, or another OTI-EC, may be used to fulfill three of the course requirements for a UA OTI-EC certificate. Any courses not taken at UA must have been completed within three years prior to the student’s official “certification enrollment date” and no later than three years after this date

All coursework must be completed within three years after the official “certificate enrollment date.” The official “certificate enrollment date” is the first day of the first UA class the student wishes to count towards the Certificate.

When a student has completed the entire certificate program, they must fill out an official “Certificate Application Form” online at www.uaosha.ccs.ua.edu. Students must provide copies of all official OTI Course Certificates to be included in the UA OTI-EC Certificate Program.
