HomeCourses / UCSD Safety Courses

UCSD-developed safety and health courses are designed by our high quality and experienced faculty to bring applied safety regulations and curriculum to our students. Some courses may be applied to the Occupational Safety and Health Department Certificate Programs.

Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) Classes

The VILT UC San Diego OTIEC classes will be administered with the same standards, guidelines and policies as the in-person OTIEC course offerings. Per OSHA’s guidelines for live online courses, students are required to have video capabilities and must be visible at all times to the instructor and facilitator during the class. Unfortunately, if a student cannot comply with this requirement, they will not be able to attend the class. Students are required to attend all days and times in order to receive a course completion certificate and/or trainer card. Students' participation, attendance and exam monitoring will be documented. Early registration is highly recommended. 
Although the classes will be taught live via scheduled Zoom meetings, Canvas also provides administrative support and will provide students access to required forms as well as the course materials.  

The VILT classes at the UC San Diego OTIEC are available to anyone who lives or works in OSHA Region 9 (Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Pacific Territories and American Samoa). Additionally, if you are a current Outreach Trainer with UCSD, regardless of your residence, you are still eligible to attend a Trainer Update Course (OSHA 502, OSHA 503, OSHA 5402).

Please note: It is MANDATORY for students to be at a stationary site. Students are not allowed to be in a vehicle, driving and/or on a phone while participating during class. Instructors and facilitators reserve the right to notify the department. If you cannot comply, the student will be dropped from the class. Additionally, students are not allowed to participate in the class using their phones. They must use a computer.
