Answer:

OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) offers a 30-hour certificate and wallet card for completing the 30-hour training course for either construction or general industry. These certificates and cards are accepted and recognized in all states and do not have an expiration date. The reason for this is that OSHA training is considered voluntary by OSHA. However, there are some states, organizations, industries and employers that will make OSHA training mandatory and apply their own expiration dates. If an expiration date is determined by someone other than OSHA, the employee will likely have to re-take the 30-hour training course, as there is no refresher course available. In the event that a 30-hour certificate or card is lost or damaged and needs replacement, it will only be able to be replaced through the trainer or online training source, and not through OSHA. OSHA also only allows a replacement card to be re-issued if it is less than 3 years old. If the original trainer or online source cannot be reached or more than 3 years has passed since the card was issued, the 30-hour training course will need to be repeated.
