That is exactly what I went through! Between the pretest (that won't let you advance to the next page until choose the right answer) and the quiz after each module, I kept putting it off until I only had 30 days to complete the course. I was actually shocked I let it lapse for 5 1/2 months.


You really need to be in the right state of mind in order to complete the course. I've found my mind was more open to absorb the information from 3 a.m. - 10 a.m. than, 9 p.m. - 11 p.m. This morning, I had to go to OSHA.com to define which section in 1926 is the answer to the multiple choice pretest questions in the workshops.


Fortunately, I have two modules left in which, I will complete tomorrow and, I will see my card coming in the mail within 2 weeks.

I just wanted to correct my error. Upon passing the final exam, it takes 6 - 8 weeks to receive your OSHA Card in the mail.



The American Safety Council stated you need to take their Survey in order to receive the OSHA card. So don't forget to take their Survey upon completing the Final Exam if you use the American Safety Council to acquire your OSHA 30.



It appears the answers you got wrong in the Quiz are the questions they ask you on the Final Exam. So keep some Cliff notes throughout the course.




Good Luck!

I remember the "Work Lead Safe" course years ago given by Kachina. It was such a joke that nobody in the real world could follow it. I only had to use it once in 10 years. The people who complain about using AFCI should take the LEAD course and see what real stupidity is. The working with LEAD safely law that is.

I encourage people to get the 30. It can land you a safety job in the right situation.

OMG I'm 7 hours in on the OSHA 10 course. I want to shoot my brains out. This information is a joke. Other certifications I had to get in the past had some useful information buried in it. This course is for a 10 year old going to his first construction site. I could not fathom what the OSHA 30 class would include. The OSHA 10 has to basically repeat it self and re-explain things to make up the allotted time.
