The question How long does it take for DOL OSHA 10/30-Hour card to expire is an important question which is always asked by trainers/workers who are interested or involved in the OSHA 10/30-Hour training.

Before I continue, I want to state that the OSHA 10/30-Hour training is categorized into two:

  • Workers training package
  • Trainers training package

Both covers four (4) major industries:

  • Construction
  • General Industry
  • Maritime Industry
  • Disaster Site Worker
