How to Become an Authorized Trainer
To become an authorized Disaster Site trainer, you must meet the following prerequisites:
Obtain guidance on whether you meet these prerequisites from the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center where you want to take the training.
If you have fulfilled the prerequisites, you must complete OSHA course #5600, Disaster Site Worker Train-the-Trainer Course. Students are given the opportunity to practice knowledge, skills, and attitudes through discussion, planned exercises, demonstrations and presentations. Persons successfully completing this course will receive an "Authorized Disaster Site Trainer Card".
Disaster Site outreach trainers are authorized for four years. Before the expiration of their authorization status, authorized trainers must take OSHA course #5602, Update for Disaster Site Worker Trainer Course, to renew their authorization for another four years. If your card expires, you will have to retake Course #5600 to become reauthorized as a trainer.
Authorized trainers may receive OSHA course completion cards for their students.
