The Update for General Industry Outreach Trainers (OSHA #503) course is designed for Outreach Training Program trainers who have completed course #501 Trainer Course in Occupational Safety and Health Standards for General Industry and who are authorized trainers in the OSHA Outreach Training Program. The course provides an update on OSHA General Industry Standards, policies, and regulations. Upon course completion students will have the ability to demonstrate continued professional development in their field by applying effective adult learning principles and interactive training techniques to clearly identify, define, and explain general industry hazards and acceptable corrective measures as they continue to teach the 10- and 30-hour General Industry Outreach Training Program classes.

TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires all students to fully attend enrolled classes. In order for the student to receive a certificate of completion, they must attend the entire class. We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a student out of class and have implemented the following policy to handle those situations. Below are the responsibilities and expectations of students in a TEEX course.
- Participants are expected to attend 100% of the course in which they are enrolled before a certificate of successful completion can be issued.
- If an extenuating circumstance arises in which a participant is unable to attend 100% of class, the participant must get with the instructor to complete the Participant Makeup Time Request form prior to their leaving the classroom. If the extenuating circumstance arises during non-class hours, then the participant must get with the instructor to complete the Participant Makeup Time Request form when they return to the class. If the participant is unable to return to class, they must still contact the instructor for the required processing.
- If the instructor approves an absence and the absence time is less than 20% of the class time, the instructor can assign makeup work for equivalent time missed.
- All assigned makeup work must be documented, checked by the instructor and returned with class materials to be maintained in the class record as required by OSHA and TEEX.
- For all other approved absences, participants must enroll through TEEX Registration to retake the course within the OSHA required six-month time frame.
- Unexcused absences require participants to register/pay/attend the class again at another time.
In order to fully participate in all class activities, a laptop or tablet is highly recommended.

OSHA Outreach Trainer Renewal Information
OSHA Outreach Trainers are required to attend an Update for Construction Industry Outreach Trainers (OSH502) course at least once every four years to maintain their trainer status.
Special Renewal Considerations
Should your card expire prior to attending this course, a 90-day grace period is designed to allow only for unexpected circumstances like course cancellations, illness, and other unavoidable obligations such as jury duty. After the grace period, a trainer’s authorization is considered to be expired and they will no longer be able to conduct Outreach training and receive student course completion cards. Trainer’s authorization status may only be reinstated by retaking the trainer course.
Military Service members returning from overseas have 90 days from their return date to renew their trainer authorization. Proof of military status must be shown. This includes a copy of the military orders for returning to the U.S.. Reservists who serve more than 30 days and leave active duty must furnish a copy of their DD214.
If you have special renewal considerations, please contact TEEX/ITSI Customer Care for assistance at (800) 723-3811.
