SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA's Office of Training and Educational 
Programs is designed to recognize and promote excellence in safety and 
health training. The OSHA Training Institute's (OTI) Education Centers 
offer courses for the private sector and other federal agency personnel 
at locations throughout the United States. OSHA extends its training 
reach to workers through its various Outreach Training Programs. 
Through the Outreach Training Programs, qualified individuals complete 
an OSHA trainer course and become authorized to teach student courses. 
The collection of information requirements contained in these programs 
are necessary to evaluate the applicant organization and to implement, 
oversee, and monitor the OTI Education Centers and Outreach Training 
Programs, courses and trainers. For additional substantive information 
about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal 
Register on December 28, 2023 (88 FR 89730).
    Comments are invited on: (1) whether the collection of information 
is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the 
Department, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimates of the burden and 
cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are 
to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless the OMB approves it and displays a currently valid 
OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions 
of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to 
comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid 
OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.
    DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for 
three (3) years. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than 
three (3) years without renewal. The DOL notes that information 
collection requirements submitted to the OMB for existing ICRs receive 
a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
