Course Descriptions

Gas Metal Arc Welding, COC

AVC 110 Safety/OSHA 10 1 Cr Hrs

The 10- Hour General Industry Outreach training Program is intended to provide entry-level general industry workers broad awareness on recognizing and preventing hazards on a general industry site. The training covers a variety of safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter at a general industry site. OSHA recommends this training as an orientation to occupational safety and health. Workers must receive additional training on hazards specific to their job. Training will emphasize hazard identification, avoidance, control and prevention, not OSHA standards. Instructional time will be a minimum of 10 hours.
