The ability to effectively conduct a safety training session can be real mystery unless you understand the process. You can have a wall covered with diplomas and credentials certifying your proficiency as a trainer, but unless you gain experience in actually conducting training, they're pretty much worthless. Bottom line—Only personal experience presenting safety in the actual training environment will help you gain the expertise needed to fine-tune your abilities to succeed as a safety trainer.
The purpose of this third course in the OSHAcademy Train-The-Trainer Program is to provide an overview of the basic tools and techniques for presenting classroom safety training. We'll cover the steps in preparing for training including scheduling, the importance of practice, and setting up the room. We'll look at what to do as students arrive; the basic sequence of a training session; tips on asking and answering questions; how to handle participation and conflict in the classroom, and how to wind up the training. In the last module, we'll also look at a successful on-the-job training (OJT) model every trainer should know.

After studying the course material and answering the quiz questions, it is time to take the final exam. We highly recommend answering the module quiz questions to check your understanding of the course material. The final exam questions are typically developed from these quiz questions.
OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to make sure students have gained a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a passing score on course final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams: as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.
This is an open book exam. Students are permitted to use a separate browser window to review course content while taking the exam. If you do not pass a final exam, you will see a "Retake Exam" button next to the course on your student dashboard.
If you have already paid for certificates, your exam score will be displayed on your student dashboard after successfully passing the final exam. If you chose PDF certificates, you can view and print your certificate and personal transcript from your student dashboard. If you chose original printed documents, they will be prepared and mailed to the address in your student account.
OSHAcademy provides free access to all training materials, including course modules, practice quizzes, exercises, and final exams. However, exam scores, certificates, and transcripts are provided only if you purchase a certificate package to document your training. If you do not require official training documentation, we will archive your exam results should you decide to purchase official certificates later.
