The OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Center Program set a record in fiscal year 2008, according to an OSHA press statement.

Between Oct. 1, 2007 and Sept. 30, 2008, 29,346 students were trained and 2,054 classes were taught. The OTI Education Centers provide training nationwide to private sector and federal personnel from agencies outside OSHA.

With the addition of new centers this year, OSHA has 44 training locations throughout the United States, including 28 of the top 48 major metropolitan areas. Most centers offer training through satellite locations within their respective OSHA Regions.
