OSHA, Forklift classes at RCC this month

ASHEBORO (March 9, 2021)

Need industry job training? Randolph Community College is offering two training courses to add to your checklist — “OSHA 10 for General Industry” and “Forklift Operator Training” — at the end of March.

“OSHA 10 for General Industry” provides training for general industry workers and employers on the recognition, avoidance, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the workplace. The course curriculum and instructor are authorized by OSHA. Students successfully completing this course will receive an official OSHA 10-hour course completion card.

The class (#76296) meets from 8 a.m.-2:45 p.m. on Friday, March 26, and from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. on Monday, March 29, in room 223 of the Continuing Education & Industrial Center on the Asheboro Campus. The cost is $70 plus $8 for an OSHA 10 card.

“Forklift Operator Training” provides instruction on the operation and maintenance of a Powered Industrial Truck (forklift). It is OSHA compliant and taught by a State of North Carolina certified instructor. It is a comprehensive, hands-on program that covers all aspects of lift truck training. A certificate of completion will be provided to all students who successfully complete the course. Students should wear sturdy closed toe and heel shoes (no Crocs or flip-flops) and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions as the hands-on portion will be outside.

RCC is offering this course on three different dates — March 27 (#76083), July 24 (#76084), or Dec. 11 (#76085). Each class is from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. in room 223 of the CEIC. Participants must be 18 years of age or older to enroll in this class. The cost of the course is $70.55.
