Their most popular classes include OSHA-10 Hour Construction Industry and Qualified SWPPP Practitioner. 

The OSHA 10-Hour Construction Industry Health & Safety course teaches OSHA regulations and standards as they apply to the construction industry. The course covers practices of identifying, reducing, eliminating and reporting on-site hazards. It also teaches safety awareness and assists workers in recognizing and reducing risks in the workplace. This course is intended to provide an entry level construction worker general awareness on recognizing and preventing hazards on a construction site. The training covers a variety of construction safety and health hazards which a worker may encounter on the job. 

The Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) course is a two day course required to become a stormwater professional responsible for implementing the SWPPP. The Qualified SWPPP Practitioner (QSP) course is an overview and review of necessary forms and regulations governing pollution caused by stormwater, especially implementing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). This course describes the SWPPP development process and provides helpful guidance and tips for implementing an effective Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan on your construction site. With critical changes in requirements under the new EPA Construction General Permit (CGP), construction site Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) must be developed following the requirements of the EPA or applicable state and describe the specific conditions of the site and plans for development.
