This NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) occupational safety program is the one most needed and large construction companies request for becoming a safety technician in a plant or on a large construction site. It is designed so that students can take either half first (the "Field Safety" half or the "Safety Technology" half). This CSST (Construction Site Safety Technician) program deals with hazard recognition and safety management systems. Topics covered include hazard communication, work zone safety, personal protective equipment, fall protection, trenching safety, job safety analysis and task safety analysis, safety meetings, work permit policies, risk analysis and assessment.
Those who complete both courses and pass all NCCER tests receive certification as a Construction Site Safety Technician through the National Center for Construction Education and Research, along with up to five additional credentials.  These CSST courses are offered in an online/hybrid format where students participate in Zoom classes on Saturdays, that includes lectures, discussions, and demonstrations.  Students read through presentations and study guides to complete simple assignments and quizzes online on their own, all to prepare for NCCER's official online tests that can be taken at any time of the day or night.  This program is eight weeks long with four Saturdays in each course. Recordings of Saturday classes are available in case students cannot make the Saturday sessions, which makes this course flexible with a student's schedule.
