AVO Training Institute offers an online training program for IHT’s to be taken every three years after their initial training to maintain their OSHA electrical safety certification. The online course consists of five online training modules with a 10 question test at the end of each module. An 80% minimum grade is required for each module in order to pass the course, and each module is approximately one hour in length.
This Recertification Training course is available at the McDonald’s negotiated pricing of $225 for all five modules of the course.
Please note it is your responsibility to ensure that all IHT’s working in your organization obtain and maintain their OSHA electrical safety certification. OEM equipment suppliers will require verification that all IHT’s have taken the comprehensive hands-on training course or an equivalent course in order to attend the supplier-led formal equipment troubleshooting and repair classes.
In addition, the equipment suppliers will also verify that IHT’s have completed the above online recertification training. If their original electrical safety certification is greater than three years old before allowing the IHT’s to take any additional equipment certification courses.
