Trainer ID

Dear Outreach Trainer,

OSHA has created an online list which will help the public find OSHA-authorized trainers who conduct 10- and 30-hour Outreach Training classes in construction, general industry, maritime, or disaster site work. The Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration will list only those trainers who have requested that their contact information be made public. 

As your Authorizing Training Organization (OTI Education Center), we request that you opt in or out to be listed with OSHA’s Outreach Training Program as an authorized trainer by filling out the form below: 


Inclusion on the list does not imply any endorsement by OSHA.

Please CLICK HERE to download and read the instructions for how to use this database.

Administrator - Joe Kauzlarich

- Before you can log in for the first time, Please click here to register.
- After you upload your trainer card and register, wait for Joe to approve it (less than 1 business day).
- Then your new 3-digit Trainer ID number and password will automatically be emailed to you from noreply@nsecosha.com.
- If you do not receive your password within 24 hours, the email was likely blocked by your spam filter.
- Call Joe if you have any problems getting registered.

Please be aware that for security reasons, the portal is on a 30 minute timer. This means that if you take longer than half an hour to fill out your request and then hit submit, it will not work and everything you typed will be lost. Successful submissions will see a confirmation page and receive an email receipt, while timed out submissions will be taken back to the login screen.

  • Trainers must submit their reports within 30 days of class completion in order to be issued outreach cards.
    THE PORTAL WILL NOT ACCEPT A REQUEST AFTER 30 DAYS HAVE PASSED. If your report is too late to submit, please contact Joe to discuss the matter.

  • Trainers must provide student course completion cards to their students within 30 days of receiving them from NSEC.

  • Trainers must issue student course completion cards directly to the student, regardless of who paid for the training. Cards must be sent to the student's home or work address listed on the daily sign-in sheets, or handed to students directly. Trainers who fail to comply with this requirement may be subjected to corrective action by OSHA, up to and including the revocation of authorized trainer status.

  • In case of lost or stolen outreach cards, each student is allowed only one replacement. The replacement card must be ordered by the trainer who taught the course, using this portal. The replacement fee is $25/card. OSHA will not allow replacement cards for courses that took place more than five(5) years ago; in that case the student will have to take the course over again to receive a card.

  • The Outreach Training Program is voluntary and promotes workplace safety and health by training workers about their rights and workplace hazards. Visit OSHA's Outreach Training Program web page for more information.

  • You can go to verify.nsecosha.com to access the online training verification website. You can use this to verify that a student's outreach card number is valid, or to prove that you are an authorized trainer.


How long does it take to get student cards once I have requested and paid for them?
1-2 weeks. It varies with demand and with the speed of the US Postal Service.

Do I have to pay using a credit or debit card?
Yes. We apologize for any inconvenience but we can no longer accept checks or purchase orders for student cards.

Why does the charge on my credit card say "RMEC" instead of NIU or NSEC?
Although the NSEC is physically located at Northern Illinois University, we rent this website from our friends at the Rocky Mountain Education Center. This website was developed by RMEC, but is overseen by Joe Kauzlarich at the NSEC.

I am trying to submit a request for 1 or 2 students and it won't let me.
OSHA requires that each classroom have a minimum of 3 students in it. Please call Joe to discuss.

Why is the website acting strangely when I try to enter start and end times?
If for example you are trying to enter a time of 8 AM, you need to type "0 8 0 0 A"

The website denies my request even though I have entered the topic times correctly.
First make sure that you are typing the hours in the correct format. One hour is "1.00" and half an hour is "0.50".
Please review OSHA's required minimums for each individual topic. We have posted them here. In particular, note that the four individual "Focus Four" subjects must add up to a total of at least 4 hours when added together.
