Basic Orientation Plus® An ARSC (Association of Reciprocal Safety Councils) Contractor Training Program

This instructor-led training class will be held weekly each Tuesday beginning at 7:00 AM.  Each attendee must report on time prior to the class start to check-in.  No student will be registered after the class begins.

This training course is for persons taking the Basic Orientation course for the first time, or for a break in certification.  Call the safety council for details.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to preregister at our internet site at, or via email at for the training class. Failure to do so will result in added  registration charges.  To register a student, we require name (as it appears on the government issued ID), full 9 digit Social Security number, and date of birth.

Trainees  must bring two forms of identification- one of which must be a government issued picture ID (Driver’s License, etc.).  The other form of ID can be anything with the student’s name on it (Social Security Card, credit card, etc.)

The training lasts approximately five and one-half hours plus a test and a picture ID badge will be presented to attendees passing the course.  There is a written test following the training with a minimum score of 70 as a passing grade.  Note: this instructor-led training course is both taught in English and has a written exam conducted in English language.

Tuition $60.00 per student for Contractor Training Subscribers or NSC members.  Tuition is $70.00 per student for Non-Subscribers or Non-NSC members.

Unless indicated, all training will be held at the safety council location:

Payment arrangements must be made prior to any training. Training payments may be made through credit cards and company checks.

We do not accept personal checks but will accept money orders and cash payment from individual trainees.

All special, site delivered, or out of normal business hours training must be paid in advance of the training.
