Training

​​​​​​​​​​​Welcome to the training section of the Safety Codes Council. Here you will find information on the courses that we offer, the mentoring program, and the necessary prerequisites for becoming a safety codes officer.
 
To become a safety codes officer, you must have relevant experience in the discipline of your choosing. The Safety Codes Council is responsible for the following 9 different disciplines covered under the Safety Codes Act:
  • Amusement Rides
  • Buildings
  • Electrical
  • Elevators
  • Fire
  • Gas
  • Passenger Ropeways
  • Plumbing
  • Pressure Equipment
 
When applying for training from the Safety Codes Council check, with the council to ensure you meet all of the prerequisites — at that time a competency review will be performed.
 
The courses are available to all interested parties, but in order to be certified you must meet the entrance requirements.
 
Classroom
 
Some of our courses are offered in a classroom-based seminar format. The Council is pursuing online webinars for some courses. Please contact us or browse the Council web site for schedules of the classroom courses.
 
Distance Learning
 
Most of our courses are available either by print-based correspondence or online delivery. There are many benefits of Safety Codes Council distance learning:
  • Start any time
  • Upgrade your skills without leaving home or disrupting your employment
  • Study at your own pace — take up to 6 months to complete a course
  • Access to a course advisor who will answer questions and provide clarification on course content
 
Register for courses at one central location. A Training Delivery Associate will assign a course advisor, distribute current course materials (or assign login information for online courses), administer exams, and track your progress.
