TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
Upon successful completion, you will be able to:
- Introduction to Competency
- Specific Excavation Requirements (29 CFR 1926.651)
- Requirements for Protective Systems & Soil Classification
- Emergency Planning & Response
This course is designed for private sector construction employers, managers, employees or employee representatives who, as part of a safety and health program, fulfills the requirement of a competent person for excavation work as described in the OSHA construction safety standard for excavations (29 CFR 1926 Subpart P).
