About the Program

Since 1975, the OSHT program has helped develop and credential safety professionals throughout Maryland, Northern Virginia, Pennsylvania, and DC. The program attracts both the 'traditional" student and 'non-traditional" students already working in safety or seeking a career change

The OSHT program has served a diverse group of students of all ages, genders, races, and nationalities. Graduates are widely employed in manufacturing, construction, non-profit organizations, and federal, state, and local government service.

Classes are offered in the evenings, on Saturdays, and during the day.

Many graduates have gone on to become leaders in the local safety community and some have gone on to build national and international reputations.

The staff of full and adjunct instructors offer the caliber of education that can come only from instructors who work, live and breath their profession. Adjuncts are safety leaders from nationally known organizations - Verizon, Northrop Grumman, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, etc.

Graduates can pursue additional education via transfer to 4-year colleges and universities. Alumni have been very successful in obtaining graduate-level degrees. Students with an AAS degree plus the requisite experience can qualify to sit for the ASP and CSP exams.
