Become a Certified Instructor

To become a Certified Instructor, you must be sponsored by an Authorized Training Provider (ATP). If an Authorized Training Provider can demonstrate a business need, a request for an application can be made to Energy Safety Canada. This request will be accompanied with an Instructor Applicant Authorized Training Provider Instructor Referral form.

The application fee of $250 and all subsequent instructor training costs may be paid by the applicant or the Authorized Training Provider (there is no fee applied to the referral form). This application fee will be due once a full application is submitted. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Authorized Training Provider sponsorship does not guarantee that an application will be accepted. The sponsored applicant may be a staff member or a contract instructor.

Please see the List of Authorized Training Providers in your area. Alternatively, you may explore applying for your company to Become an Authorized Training Provider.


Energy Safety Canada Instructor Application Guide and Pre-requisites

Once you receive the application documents (both Instructor General Application and course specific) from your ATP you must have the following documents ready. It is recommended that you look through these documents before determining if becoming a Certified Instructor is right for you.

How to cross-train in Energy Safety Canada courses

Energy Safety Canada will send instructor applications to candidates sponsored by an Authorized Training Provider. Therefore, if a current Certified Instructor wants to cross-train to instruct an additional Energy Safety Canada course, they must also ask a current Authorized Training Provider to sponsor them (there is no fee for this application).

Thank you for your interest in becoming an Instructor and expanding your training capacity with Energy Safety Canada.

Note: Energy Safety Canada intends to release more licensed courses over time, beginning with Energy Safety Canada Fall Protection in Q2 2019.

Communication on these additional courses will be sent to Authorized Training Providers.
