Requirements and approval instructions, if applicable, display on each course page under the Requirements & Materials tab.

I know there are courses that require a copy of the parts of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). How do I purchase the right code?

If it is required in order to take the course, you will be given the opportunity to add it as an item during the checkout process.  If purchased from Georgia Tech, our manual will be distributed during the check-in process on the first day of the course.

It is not required that you purchase the manual from Georgia Tech, so you can purchase it through other methods (U.S. Government Bookstore), but must have the manual with you on the first day of the course.

How do I know which courses require books?

Each course page has a Requirements & Materials section. All requirements for the course will be provided there.

Do I need to provide identification when I check in for an OSHA course?

A driver’s license is required in order to enter any OSHA classroom.

Will I get some sort of certificate when I complete an OSHA course?

Georgia Tech's OSHA Training Institute Education Center distributes OSHA and HAZ certificates by mail or on the last day of class.

GTPE Registrar's Office mails EST course completion documents after course grades are submitted.

Does Georgia Tech offer a degree in Occupational Safety and Health?

Yes. Georgia Tech offers a flexible Professional Master's in Occupational Safety and Health (PMOSH) that is tailored to working professionals who are ready to boost their careers and step into a leadership role within the OSH field.

Can Georgia Tech provide training for a group of employees from just my company?
