Statement of Information for Outreach Trainers on Reopening Region 9 OTI Education Centers
The UC San Diego OTI Education Center will adhere to full operations* on October 1, 2021 in order to impose the one-time 90-day grace period for Outreach Trainer authorization renewals.
*In the event that the UC San Diego OTIEC is affected by ongoing pandemic concerns, it will continue to enforce the 90-grace period.
The 90-day grace period will begin on October 1, 2021 and will end on December 31, 2021.
If you are a trainer and you expired during your Authorized Training Organization’s (ATO) pandemic closure
, you will be afforded a one-time 90-day grace period. You may attend** a trainer update course (OSHA 502, OSHA 5029, OSHA 503, OSHA 5039, OSHA 5402) to renew your authorization for four years.
**It is highly advised that you attend a trainer update class as soon as possible and do not delay until the official grace period begins.
If you are currently an authorized Outreach Trainer and will be expiring prior to December 31, 2021, you must attend a trainer update class prior to the end of the announced 90-day grace period.
Beginning January 1, 2022, there will no longer be a grace period and no exceptions will be granted.
