Important Note

Effective March 15, 2024, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has released a major revision of the EM 385-1-1 manual. In response, OSHAcademy is offering an updated 40-hour EM 385-1-1 program for the 2024 edition. Students are no longer able to enroll in the 2014 edition.

Due to the this significant revision, training completed under the 40-hour EM-385-1-1 (2014 Edition) cannot be applied to the 40-hour EM-385-1-1 (2024 Edition).
