Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Course Introduction

Course Introduction

After a school building is constructed, it is important school district administrators keep a close eye on the quality of the buildings. New buildings tend to deteriorate quickly because of poor weather conditions and routine wear and tear. If administrators make maintenance a priority from the beginning, it could reduce large and expensive fixes in the future.

This course takes a closer look at the building and athletic field maintenance as well as providing ways to keep both students and staff safe both in parking lots and school buildings.

Exam score sheet

After studying the course material and answering the quiz questions, it is time to take the final exam. We highly recommend answering the module quiz questions to check your understanding of the course material. The final exam questions are typically developed from these quiz questions.

OSHAcademy course final exams are designed to make sure students have gained a sufficient understanding of the content covered within each course. To help demonstrate this understanding, students must achieve a passing score on course final exams. It is OSHAcademy's policy to protect the integrity of our exams: as a result, we do not provide missed questions to students.

This is an open book exam. Students are permitted to use a separate browser window to review course content while taking the exam. If you do not pass a final exam, you will see a "Retake Exam" button next to the course on your student dashboard.

If you have already paid for certificates, your exam score will be displayed on your student dashboard after successfully passing the final exam. If you chose PDF certificates, you can view and print your certificate and personal transcript from your student dashboard. If you chose original printed documents, they will be prepared and mailed to the address in your student account.

If you only want free training

OSHAcademy provides free access to all training materials, including course modules, practice quizzes, exercises, and final exams.
