Georgia Tech does not offer forklift training/certification. Please reach out to forklift manufacturers or technical colleges in your area.
No, Georgia Tech does not offer the 10- and 30-hour OSHA safety training courses. Instead, we offer the following two courses (OSHA 510 and OSHA 511) which provide in-depth training of their respective OSHA safety standards (construction and general industry), as opposed to simply teaching hazard awareness. Completion of the OSHA 510 or OSHA 511 is a pre-requisite if you want to eventually pursue becoming an OSHA authorized outreach trainer capable of conducting 10- or 30-hour classes. The OSHA 510/511 is geared toward introducing new safety managers or trainers to OSHA regulations, and common hazards and control strategies.
