We started started 10 Certified because we felt there wasn’t a modern, interactive, compliant solution for online OSHA 10 certification training at an affordable price point.
Sure, there are some good training providers on the market, but when we were looking for a certification provider most of what we saw ranged from the outdated to the overly complicated.
The problem with OSHA Training
Obviously providing training is a business, but that doesn’t mean a training course should adhere to the lowest common standard.
In our thorough analysis of the current market offerings we identified three main options that were available to individuals looking to get certified, and employers wanting to train their contractors.
- Certificate Shops: By this we mean ’training’ that essentially cuts and pastes the main points from OSHA’s website and the EM385-1-1 manual, gives the trainee an option to skip all content and go straight to a 3 question exam. We won’t bother outlining why we think this is a bad option for anyone who really cares about the safety of themselves or their staff.
- Outdated slide based eLearning courses: Looking like a poorly put together powerpoint presentation with some clickable boxes and possibly video added as an afterthought, these throwbacks to the old days of eLearning do usually have a decent amount of content. The problem? They are almost universally disliked by trainees as they are linear, boring and do not work well on modern devices.
- Video based courses: These generally come in two flavors, a straight to camera set of videos delivered by a subject matter expert, or a ’talking head’ animated video. We feel that instructor led videos do provide some good in depth training, the main problem is they are generally overly long and lack demonstrative and interactive content. Multiple research suggests that videos longer than 3 minutes in length lack engagement with learners and the content simply is not retained.
Time to shake up the OSHA Industry
All of our online OSHA certification courses are developed as short, targeted, manageable chunks that engage the learner, have a high level of interactivity and generally, are no longer than 2 to 3 minutes per topic. Another key feature of our training is that’s it’s designed to be consumed on any device, and can be started, stopped, paused and resumed at any time making it the ideal way to consume a course in multiple sittings.
