The Building certification and training structure changed in 2016.
There are several benefits to changing the Building SCO training structure. The new certification and training structure:
- provides flexibility for Building SCOs and their employers by maintaining separate structural and HVAC certifications
- streamlines training and reduces overall training costs for students, Building SCOs and accredited organizations
- simplifies and clarifies the scopes of practice for Building SCOs
- establishes a more appropriate scope of practice for new Building SCOs
- more closely aligns certification levels used in Alberta with those used for building officials in other provinces and territories
Additional information can also be found in the New Building Certification and Training Structure for SCOs booklet.
