  • Trainers who wish to receive cards with the student names pre-printed should submit their request by email using the .docx file above. If you are submitting a PDF, email the PDF AND the OSHA Excel Card Template.

  • Reports submitted by fax or mail will not receive pre-printed cards; instead blank cards will be sent to you, and you will be responsible for writing the names in ink or printing them.
  • It is not necessary to submit any documents other than the training report. Documents such as class schedules and student sign-in sheets should be kept in your personal records in case of an OSHA audit.

3. Pay the $5 per card processing fee 

  • Pay online with a credit card. (Please use only one login and password per trainer)
  • To pay by mail or fax, complete the Card Fee Payment Form (PDF version)
    • Fax only the payment form. The training report should go directly to Joe (see #2 above).

  • If you prefer to order by phone using a credit card, call (800) 656-5317 and speak to NIU Outreach Registration.

4. Your cards will be mailed to you within 30 days of your submitted and paid request.

  • The average time frame to receive cards is currently 1-2 weeks from date of submittal. Cards that have not been paid for will be delayed until payment is received. If it has been two weeks and your cards have not yet arrived, call (815) 753-6904 to check on the status of your order.
