The MCAA Virtual University hosts self-paced online courses that can be accessed by you or your entire team twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week from the comfort of your office or home! Over 100 courses are currently online including the OSHA 10 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training Program.
The OSHA 10 Hour Construction Industry Outreach Training Program has been designed for construction workers, foremen, job supervisors, and anyone involved in the construction industry. OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers covered by OSHA 29 CFR 1926. Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of the job.
This online course has been reviewed and accepted by OSHA for online distribution. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive an OSHA construction safety and health 10-hour course completion card from the Department of Labor. This course has also been approved for 10 Masonry Certification credits.
All courses offered are eligible for Masonry Certification credit. Many courses are also available in Spanish.
