The EKU OTI Education Center is happy to announce the launch of a new and improved Outreach Portal effective January 1, 2023. The new Outreach Portal offers a more established, robust, and user-friendly system for our authorized Outreach trainers.
We at the EKU OTI Education Center believe that you will find the new system much more seamless; everything Outreach training related is now in one place. You will now be able to track the status of your reports directly from the user interface. You will be able to see when an Outreach Training Program Report has been approved, or when a report is flagged and there are issues that need to be addressed. You will also be able to purchase cards from within the system, including replacement cards, and track the mailing status of your order directly from within the portal.

OSHA announces upcoming fee changes for student course completion cards for Outreach Training Program
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration announced upcoming changes in fees for issuing new student course completion cards for its Outreach Training Program.
Effective Oct. 1, 2023, OSHA will increase the fee for new course completion cards from $8 to $10 per card to address significant cost changes associated with producing and distributing the cards. The new fee reflects the first cost increase since 2017.
OSHA also announced the agency will adjust the fee every two years if needed based on the Consumer Price Index.
Fees for replacement cards, established by the Authorizing Training Organizations, may also be affected by this cost increase. Workers who already have outreach cards do not need to request replacements.
OSHA has created 10- and 30-hour basic safety courses tailored to construction, maritime and general industry, as well as 7.5- and 15-hour classes for disaster site workers. These courses cover the basics of worker rights and OSHA protections. They also describe how to identify, avoid and prevent workplace hazards. OSHA does not require these courses but some municipalities, unions, employers and other organizations do. In fiscal year 2022, the program trained more than one million students.
To obtain copies of course completion documents, such as student course completion cards, students must contact the original training provider. View a list of authorized outreach trainers and online providers. Please note, replacement student course completion cards for OSHA Outreach Training Program classes cannot be issued for training completed more than five years ago. Only one replacement card may be issued per student per class.
