Become a recognized training provider for FSR continuing education

Electrical Field Safety Representatives (FSRs) must satisfy continuing education requirements before they can renew their certificate of qualification, as established in the Electrical Safety Regulation. The next renewal process in 2021 requires class A, B and C FSRs to:

  • receive eight hours of continuing education training supplied by a recognized training provider; or
  • self-study and pass the challenge exam with Technical Safety BC. FSRs who do not pass the exam must complete the required eight-hour training program prior to renewing in 2021.

Training providers that wish to offer a continuing education curriculum for class A, B and C FSRs can apply for a course recognition with Technical Safety BC.
