Established in 2008, TSC Training Academy, LLC, a Woman Business Enterprise certified by New York State, has been providing safety-training services since 1996 under their parent company Total Safety Consulting (TSC). TSCTA operates throughout the country with their main training facility located in Long Island City, Queens and satellite locations in New York City and New Jersey. Together, TSCTA and TSC are the largest privately held providers of safety management, loss control engineering services, and environmental health and safety and technical training services in the tri-state area.
In recent years TSCTA has expanded its student base by collaborating with nonprofit organizations, community schools and hospitals to provide construction safety training programs to those segments of the work force that are often under served. To ensure that they reach the widest range of audience possible, while still maintaining the superior quality standard TSCTA aspires to provide for all students, their training services are offered in a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Cantonese, and Mandarin.
TSCTA’s most recent achievement, that being approval by IACET to award CEUs for it’s courses and programs, is a significant milestone for TSCTA, as we are one of a handful of NYC based companies exclusively dedicated to environmental health and safety training to have received this accreditation. While important to the organizations mission, it is more importantly an additional benefit for students of TSCTA courses, as those who complete certain courses through TSCTA can reap benefits beyond the lessons learned in their training including:
CEUs that can be applied toward maintaining a certification;
CEUs provide a nationally established record of professional development learning activity and provide a method to document continuing education.
IACET’s mission is to advance the global workforce by providing a standard framework for quality learning and development through accreditation. TSCTA’s IACET accreditation further fulfills our organizations vision to aspire to be a center of excellence for continuing education and training on behalf of city, state and federal licensing and accrediting entities such as the NYC Department of Buildings and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The IACET standard has provided the framework for TSCTA’s continuous improvement, with the ultimate goal of delivering a superior learning experience to each and every student.
In September 2015, TSCTA started construction to expand the existing Long Island City, NY campus to keep pace with their continued growth, and to afford the future introduction of more diversified curriculum options for their Clients. The added square footage will feature two new classrooms, state-of-the art hands-on training equipment, enhanced student support amenities and additional administrative offices.
“TSCTA’s new facilities will allow us to increase our capabilities in key areas that align with our current and future growth plans in the general and construction safety industries. The new space will allow us to expand our core teams to support the growth we are experiencing while giving us dedicated facilities to host more diversified course options and other activities.” said Tom Ferrante, Director of Training for TSCTA. “Our team is excited about the growth we are experiencing and this move represents a commitment to continue to build on the success our team has accomplished.”
