The Southeastern OTI Education Center is a partnership between the University of Tennessee and North Carolina State University. As an OTI ED Center we are authorized by OSHA to deliver high quality, nationally recognized training to public and private sector workers, supervisors and employers. Our experienced instructors can offer these programs to you as either open enrollment or site delivered classes. The Southeastern OTI Education Center is one of only 28 centers nationwide.

The OTI Education Centers provide training nationwide to private sector and federal personnel from agencies outside OSHA. Centers are selected based on organizational experience, staff experience, location and training facilities, marketing and recruitment, administrative capabilities, evaluation, and the ability to provide training throughout a given region. The OTI Education Centers program was created in 1992 to complement the OSHA Training Institute in Arlington Heights, Ill., which provides training and education to OSHA compliance officers.
