Completing OnLine Training


The following instructions are for accessing the UIC/EHSO on-line training.The training is required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for all UIC researchers, students, residents, faculty, and staff that are required to wear particulate respirators when there is potential exposure to airborne infectious materials and/or other harmful airborne particulate matter. Once the training has been reviewed and the test has been successfully passed, you must be fitted with the appropriate respirator by EHSO (referred to as "fit-testing"), according to your supervisor's or program coordinator's instruction. The training & test, along with respirator fit-testing, must be completed annually or more frequently, if deemed necessary.

Time Commitment

The course will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. If you cannot complete the course in one session, you may log in at a later time using the same user name and continue with course.

  • A score of 80% is required for passing.
  • A passing score is required to fulfill the training requirement and to proceed to the final step of fit-testing.
  • Should a user fail the exam the exam may be taken more than once.
  • DO NOT attempt to take the quiz without first viewing the entire course.
