CRSP EXAM PREPARATION ONLINE COURSE OVERVIEW :
Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (CRSPs) are people employed in the occupational health, safety, and environmental field in a professional capacity, as practitioners, consultants, or educators. CRSPs use a combination of engineering, human, and physical sciences to develop and implement programs, systems, procedures, and techniques for the reduction and elimination of losses.
The CRSP designation is now a widely accepted form of recognition by industry and government in Canada. Many employers in Canada require applications to have the CRSP designation in order to qualify for safety positions. This CRSP Exam Preparation Workshop is designed to prepare eligible candidates for the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) Exam.
Applicants registering for the BCRSP certification after July 1, 2018 will be required to have the following:
- A minimum of a 4-year bachelor’s degree in any field or a 2-year diploma (or certificate) (minimum of 900 hours or 60 credits) in occupational health and safety or a closely related field from a recognized academic institution.
- At least 4 years of experience where occupational health and safety duties comprise at least 50% of the applicant’s work responsibilities.

CRSP EXAM PREPARATION ONLINE COURSE CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS:
The Certification Management Program (CMP) applies to each CRSP who must earn a minimum of 25 CMPs within a 5-year period to maintain certification. It starts January 1st of the following year.
The system of credits will require a reasonable degree of effort in activities contributing to continued professional development but should not be unduly difficult for any CRSP to meet.
The credit system is divided into three categories and credits may be obtained in one or more of these categories:
- Academic Activities
- Examinations and Additional Qualifications
- Professional Pursuits
A detailed breakdown of these categories with allocated credits will be provided to all candidates on successfully achieving the CRSP designation. CMP information may also be viewed on the Board’s website.
