Certification maintains a standard of excellence in certifying safety codes officers, in granting Designation of Powers in accordance with the Safety Codes Act, and by working to enhance the professionalism of the role of the safety codes officer.
The Safety Codes Council is responsible for the training and certification of all safety codes officers in the province of Alberta.
Becoming a Safety Codes Officer
