If so, Roane State has Grant Funding available to help offset the cost of one half of the training.

OSHA 30 Hour
Classes of 8 to 24 employees normally cost $3200. These are now available for $1600.

Funding is available on a first-come first-served basis, and training should be scheduled for completion by no later than March 2014.
