Frequently Asked Questions


Many other companies or organizations charge a fee simply to access their training materials online and then give you a low-quality PDF certificate to document training. Often online training sites also place a time limit on your training. If you don't complete the training within their time limit, you lose both your money and your training.

BUT OSHAssociation UK does not put a time limit on your training! Complete your training when you have time and at your own pace, 100% FREE ACCESS. If you do purchase your certificates in advance, you will never lose access to your training. Need to take a few months off? No problem. We'll be here when you are ready to start back up! That is what makes OSHAssociation UK Training different and unique compared to others.

At OSHssociation UK, you can purchase individual certificates for each course you complete, or you can purchase a program. OSHAssociation UK program package is a great opportunity for students and employers who want a more comprehensive training experience. When you purchase a program package, you receive certificates for each of the required program and your student transcripts.

Our training platform is designed to be compatible with any device running a modern web browser.

You can access our training through our website or by downloading one of our free PDF study guides and train wherever and whenever you want. You can use almost any device you have, including computers, tablets, and smart phones devices right from your office or home.

There is always a difference between a program and a course.


A course is one focused unit of study containing the topics to complete. Example is PPE.

A program is made up of several required courses, and is designed to ensure the student has a solid foundation for the broader program selected. Students must complete all required courses in order to complete a program. Example is the Manager Program Certificate

At the end of each course, students are required to take the course exam and pass with the required mark. Students will automatically see their scores on the completion of any exam before proceeding to the next course.

If you have passed your final exam but have not yet paid for your certificate you will see the word "Completed" next to the course in your training dashboard, then you can now purchase your certificate.

Students will only receive their detailed exam score and updated training transcript if they have paid for the certificate or program which requires the course.

There is no time limit to complete a course or program.

Students should be able to pass a program examination within three attempts. The course exams are designed to ensure a reasonable knowledge of the course content. Students are allowed to submit a program exam three times within a 48 hour period. If the student fails the exam all three times, they are required to wait an additional 48 hours before they can submit the exam again.

Students should review the course material during this required wait period to ensure they have reviewed any concept they did not understand.

We are here to help. If you have a question about course content, please email our online Intructor via
