Students from The Facilities Management Solutions Program of Congress Heights Community Training and Development Corporation (CHCTDC) completed their OSHA 10 and flaggers certifications this week.

OSHA 10 is an outreach and voluntary training program provided by Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA), United States Department of Labor. It provides 10 hours of training to the workers and employees touching on appreciation, prevention, avoidance and reduction of safety and health hazards in the workplace. It also enriches the workers knowledge on their rights, employer responsibilities and procedures for complaints and suggestions. This course further enriches our students in the development of their professional skill set.

The ATSSA Flagger Certification is a basic course that prepares each worker to handle the responsibilities associated with highway flagger responsibilities; this certification is eligible for 3 years. The Bureau of Labor Statistics also states that the median hourly income of flaggers and other construction laborers and helpers in 2010 was $17.00 per hour, which translates into $35,360 a year. The great thing about this certification is that gives our students the ability to employment immediately. 

The following students completed these certifications: Dontae Skinner, D’Erika Robinson, Iesha Lee, Jahi, Lewis, James Landy, Anthony Ettison, Alhaji Sesay and Bertrand Essom. If you are interested in securing these valuable certifications along with other nationally recognized ones, please call 202-563-5200 for further information.
