Construction Safety Certification

Special Certification (Technical Specialist programs) recognizes individuals who have reached a certain level of expertise within a defined area. Special Certification does not, at this time, grant membership in ASTTBC and is not part of the regular certification program for technologists and technicians. Special Certification has been developed in conjunction with appropriate industry, government, education, and other interested groups.

Special Certification represents an important vehicle whereby ASTTBC can recognize specialty areas, either as a form of ‘endorsement’ to ASTTBC certification as an AScT, CTech, Associate or as a separate, distinct ‘Technical Specialist’.

ASTTBC certifies Construction Safety Officers who have successfully completed training provided by approved agencies, accredited by ASTTBC.  Currently these include the BC Institute of Technology, Care Institute of Safety and Health Inc.and ER Plus Risk Management Group Inc.

Construction Safety Officers take responsibility for public safety around construction sites.
