Building your career in Occupational Health and Safety

Earning one or more of our health and safety certificates can help you increase your earning potential, and enhance your employability, mobility, and professional credibility, according to the BCRSP. The Chang School offers one of the top certificate programs in Ontario that meet the educational requirements for the Canadian Registered Safety Professional (CSRP) certification. 

You can write BCRSP’s Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) exam after completing the Occupational Health and Safety certificate. If you continue on and complete both the Advanced Safety Management and Occupational Health and Safety Leadership certificates, you can challenge the BCRSP exam to obtain the CRSP certification.  

The Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety is an online program with in-person exams, while the Certificate in Advanced Safety Management and Certificate in Occupational Health and Safety Leadership are completed online.  

All three health and safety certificate programs are designed and taught by health and safety specialists, so you’ll have the up-to-date skills and knowledge you’ll need to tackle a wide variety of real-world occupational health and safety challenges.
