Their state-of-the art labs include a multi-million dollar Haas machine tool lab, Harley-Davidson training and assessment lab and an impressive host of other technical labs for CADD, HVAC and welding.

Maintaining Certifications

The CEU, or Continuing Education Unit, is a nationally recognized unit of measurement for post-secondary education, professional development and career training. OTIEC MCC provides CEUs for all of our safety and environmental courses.

CM points are accrued by Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs) who are certified by the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. Most of OSHA Training Institute Education Courses and HAZWOPER courses are approved for CM points. ABIH requires verification of course attendance.

BCSP points are accrued by Certified Safety Professionals (CSPs) who are certified by the Board of Certified Safety Professionals. OSHA Training Institute Education Center safety and environmental courses are approved for BCSP points. CSPs may earn Continuance of Certification (COC) points and OHSTs or CHSTs may earn Certification Maintenance points by taking these courses. BCSP points are determined by CEUs (1 point for every CEU).

Any questions can be referred to our office at 816.604.5422.

Risk Management

Risk Management is important to the success of any business.  Risk management is designed to reduce or eliminate the risk from events that can have an impact on business.

Risk management identifies, assesses, and prioritizes the different types of risk a business may encounter.  These risks include; injuries, fires, tornadoes, security, data storage, credit risks, and lawsuits.

To prevent risk, risk managers create a plan to minimize or eliminate the impact of negative events.  Many strategies are available to minimize or eliminate these risks, but depend on the type of risk and the type of business.  At the Institute for Workforce Innovation, we can help you minimize and eliminate those risks.  One way is through courses offered by the OSHA Training Institute Education Center and our new courses in Risk Management and Environmental Management.
