Become a recognized training provider

Electrical Field Safety Representatives (FSRs) must satisfy training requirements for certification issuance and continuing education requirements for certification renewal.

If you are a training provider and want to offer FSR training, you can apply for course recognition with Technical Safety BC.

Step 1: For FSR certification training, review our FSR Classes to ensure your curriculum aligns with our training requirements. For FSR continuing education training, review our FSR A, B and C Continuing Education Syllabus and Restricted FSR Continuing Education Syllabus.

Step 2: Complete this application form to submit your general information.

Step 3: Within 5 business days, your application will be assessed, and you will receive an email with a secure link. Use this link to upload the following documents:

  1. List of instructors, including their names, years of trade experience, and years of teaching experience
  2. Qualifications of instructors, including copies of trade qualifications and teaching qualifications
  3. Course outline and lesson plan
  4. Course delivery method
  5. Course material, which may include presentations and handouts
