If you are an occupational health and safety professional with 3 or more years of experience, you may be eligible for the CRSP designation.  There are now over 5,000 CRSPs in Canada.  Employers value the CRSP as evidence of professional status and experience.  The CRSP is awarded by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals.  Please check the BCRSP website www.bcrsp.ca for details of eligibility and for the application forms to become a CRSP.


The eligibility requirements to obtain your CRSP designation change in 2018. You will need a degree or 2 years college/university in OHS as well as 4 years experience. Strongly suggest that if you can't meet the new requirements that you apply to the BCRSP soon. You don't have to have received your CRSP before 2018, you just have to have applied before July 1, 2018. 

Course Content

This two-day course prepares participants for the CRSP exam that is offered three times a year by the BCRSP (Feb, June and Oct).  You can take the course with or without having first applied to the BCRSP.  Some people take the course as a last minute review and others in order to develop a study plan.  It is now advisable to take the course several months before the exam date. We cover:

  • the process of applying to the BCRSP
  • studying strategies
  • techniques for answering multiple choice questions
  • what to do on the day of the exam
  • sample questions from the 9 BCRSP study guides

Participants receive manuals containing over 4500 study questions. Other CRSP prep materials summarize the study guides and therefore lose detail, and so are insufficient preparation. The 4500 study questions cover the details in the study guides. Participants also receive a Certificate of Attendance which is worth 2 professional development points in the application to BCRSP. 

Dr. Peter Strahlendorf has presented this course to many hundreds of people across Canada since 1993 in cities all across Canada.  This is the most widely used CRSP course in Canada. Most current CRSPs took this course. 

Course Fee and Registration

The CRSP Prep course is $700, plus HST/GST of the province where the course is held.  Discount is available ($600 cost per person) if 3 or more people are from the same organization.
