Get Certified

A certificate of qualification is issued to an individual who has the knowledge and ability to do work on regulated equipment under the Safety Standards Act in British Columbia. The Act defines the scope of regulated work within the specific certificate. Select your trade to get information on obtaining or renewing your certification.

If you are a contractor or a contracting company, you can obtain a licence with us in order to install, operate, and maintain regulated equipment across the province.

NOTE: As of January 1, 2024, our fee system will offer different price options for online and in-person exams. Through the new process, you will only pay the application fee when submitting your application. After we have received your application and reviewed your qualifications, you will then receive an option to choose an exam session. Login to your online services account to review the new exam pricing.
