Pittsburgh, Pa. (PRWEB) July 27, 2006
Turner Construction Company, the leading general builder in the U.S., announced today the release of its new 100 percent online OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) 30-Hour course. Available through Turner’s online learning web site, http://www.turneruniversity.com, the course consists of 29 lessons and an online assessment.
Designed to minimize time away from the job site, this course is highly recommended for all construction professionals, trade workers, supervisors and superintendents. Upon successful completion, the learner will receive an OSHA 30-Hour card.
“We are pleased to be able to offer the OSHA 30-Hour 100 percent online course to the construction community,” said James I. Mitnick, senior vice president and sponsor of Turner Knowledge Network™ (TKN), Turner’s construction industry knowledge network available to both Turner employees and the public. “And the real value is that it was built by construction professionals for construction professionals, and is the most comprehensive of its kind. Our previously offered course required a one-day instructor-led class and exam. That meant time away from the job for many participants. With the new course, participants complete the program within their own time frame, with the convenience of completing it from home if they choose– no scheduling or time spent traveling necessary.”
Learners have six months from the time of purchase to complete the course. A passing score of 70 percent or higher is required to receive the OSHA 30-Hour card. For more information, visit us at http://www.turneruniversity.com.
