The U.S. Department of Labor announced the selection of 20 Training Institute Education Centers, almost doubling the number of centers that currently offer training courses on OSHA standards and occupational safety and health issues.

OSHA's previous training program included 12 centers. The new program has been expanded to include 20 centers at 35 locations throughout the country.

"More than 14,500 students were trained at education centers in 2002 alone. We expect the number of students trained by these centers to double over the next two years," said Labor Secretary Elaine Chao.
