Electrical FSR: Classes

FSR Classes

We offer class A, B or C field safety representative (FSR) certificates of qualification, and restricted class A, B or C FSR certificates of qualification. These certificates are based on the types of electrical work that can be performed.

In the case of restricted certificate classes, the scope of work is restricted to performing only a certain type of regulated electrical work that falls within a broader category of class. Examples of restricted certificate classes include work with underground raceways, power lines, or security alarm systems. Restricted classes are identified with the letter R in their names. 

As of 2020, some of our class names have changed. To make the transition easier, we've made sure to indicate name changes where relevant.

We offer certificates for the following classes:

  • Class A FSR: can submit declarations for any type of regulated electrical work, no voltage or ampere limitations.
  • Class B FSR: can submit declarations only with respect to electrical installations in which the voltage of the completed installation does not exceed 750 volts.
  • Class C FSR: can submit declarations only with respect to electrical installations that do not exceed 200 amps and voltage of 150 volts to ground, single phase power.
  • Class A-R - Power Line Technician: can act as an FSR and install, construct, alter, repair, maintain, test, service, and/or operate related overhead, underground, marine electrical transmission, and distribution systems.
