Default OSHA "Confined Space" Certification?

Has anyone gotten this, specifically for "non-permit status"?

we worked for a large gc who used to have a 1 or 2 day shindig every year where you could sign up for 2 or 3 certs like that (2 to 4 hr class plus some bs piece of paper).

I found an OSHA approved certification course online. $20, 2 hours.
Called closest OSHA office(Santa Fe), they said that there is no non-permit certification. Only permitted, so that you can explain why something is non-permitted. Sound about right?

Also, once you get the cert, come up with an SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) & train until you know it. Too many people lapse back into apathy once they get the cert.

I was mistaken. It's for 2012, I'm looking for a more current one.

Does everyone at the company need certification or will the certification cover all of us under the wing if we learn it from the person trained?

Depends on your specific situation. How big is your company and where are you in the food chain?

Pretty small and I've been spending a lot of time in the office.
