Cancellation Policy Tardiness Course Grades and Policies

Cancellation Policy

The OSHA Training Center (OTC) reserves the right to cancel/reschedule any event. Registrants will be notified a minimum of 48 hours in advance of start date. A full refund or credit will be issued for OTC canceled classes. Attendee cancellations/reschedules must be submitted in writing a minimum of 10 days prior to the first day of class. A full refund must be requested in writing at the time of cancellation, otherwise a credit will be issued for future classes. No-shows or cancellations less than 10 days prior will not be allowed to transfer to another class and will forfeit the entire amount of the course in order to recover costs associated with the event. Special circumstances are an exception to this policy and must be approved by a CLPCCD OTC staff member.


OTC classes are held to Federal- and California-OSHA standards, including the number of contact hours required per training. With the exception of the first day in which a student may arrive at class up to fifteen (15) minutes into the first session without being dropped from the program, tardiness will not be tolerated. Other than the first day, late arrivals, early departures or no-shows for any of the course sessions will result in being dropped from the course without any fee refunds.

Course Grades and Policies

OTC classes are taught on a pass/no pass basis. Students are expected to attend all sessions in full, respect the instructor and other students, and participate in class discussions and exercises. Additionally, some courses require an examination, which students must pass to complete the course with a passing grade. Students will be informed if an examination is to be included as part of the course requirements on the first day of class.

Students achieving the above requirements (attendance, respect for others, participation, and on occasion an examination, depending on OSHA requirements) will receive a “pass” for the course. Students who do not meet the above requirements (for any reason) will receive a “no pass” for the course. Students receiving a “no pass” may re-take the course at their own expense to try to achieve a passing grade.
