Knowledge Update Requirements

Electrical Field Safety Representatives (FSRs) certification renewals prior to 2021 do not require a knowledge update.

For renewals in 2021 and after, FSRs will need to provide proof of up-to-date knowledge on the current adopted Canadian Electrical Code, Safety Standards Act and regulations by completing either:

  1. an online assessment provided by Technical Safety BC on the current adopted Canadian Electrical Code, Safety Standards Act and regulations (Unsuccessful applicants will be required to update their knowledge through a Technical Safety BC-approved training provider); or
  2. training on the current adopted Canadian Electrical Code, Safety Standards Act and regulations through Technical Safety BC or a Technical Safety BC-approved course. The cost of training will be set by the approved training providers. 

FSRs will be expected to have up-to-date knowledge by the time they renew their certificates in 2021 and beyond. If the 2018 Canadian Electrical Code does not get adopted by February 2020, Technical Safety BC will communicate any impact this may have on knowledge update requirements.

Further information on knowledge update requirements and approved training providers will become available as the program develops.

 

“Professional engineers and geoscientists take pride in doing their work safely and to the highest standards. Knowing about changes to codes and regulations is essential, and we support training that will keep everyone involved in the electrical industry up to date.”

– Gillian Pichler, Director, Registration, Professional Engineers and Geoscientists BC
