    Certification Details – Let’s Get Started
    Obtaining a Certificate of Qualification from Technical Safety BC (TSBC) – formerly known as the British Columbia Safety Authority (BCSA), provides assurance that you have the knowledge and ability to do regulated work. The Safety Standards Act defines the scope of regulated work within the specific certificate.
    The classroom time is a prerequisite in this process and attendance will be recorded. The instruction flows at a moderate rate and questions are covered in detail. To ensure success, every student is recommended to participate as well as follow precise guidelines. Those that adhere to this advice have the highest success rate.
    This includes but is not limited to, every person being respectful to all others. Improper behavior will not be tolerated, and any person asked to leave the course will not receive a refund of any type. This course is enjoyable and informative, and we pride ourselves in maintaining
    • Important:
    o KEEP IN TOUCH WITH US !!! We have regular updates you need to know about.

    We will assist everyone with the required exam and evaluation applications.
    Unlike some other course providers, we do not charge students for exam questions, but I ask that you do not share or use any of our material without my written consent as it is all copyrighted 2020.

    Our Recommendations are:

    o Study & Review. If you do not obtain at least 85% on your exams, do not attempt the TSBC Exam! Study hard and bring your marks up. Ie: After the class is done, study everyday until the sitting of the exam.
    o You must complete registration AND payment to TSBC before month’s end if you want to take the exam the following month.
    Note: You are not required to take the exam at the next sitting. The date of your exam is YOUR choice and should only be made after careful evaluation of your understanding. WE CAN ASSIST WITH THIS PROCESS AT NO CHARGE!!!

    Classroom Material

    We ask that each student brings several highlighters of various colors. If the course includes these books, Do not write in the Academic Supplements or Code Books !!! as TSBC may not allow the material in the examination if it has writing/printing in it.. Sticky notes work well as we can remove them prior to the exam. Highlighting is permitted.
    Also bring a ruler, pencil, pen, and an eraser as there are many instances where we will be drawing the components of a refrigeration system as well as extensive note taking. Building your own “Flash Cards” are highly recommended.

    Instructional Tours
    Walking tours of a refrigeration plant may or may not take place depending on time and permission but do wear comfortable closed toed shoes in the event a tour does take place.
    No contact lenses are to be worn in the machinery rooms during the tours.
    No hands-on experience will be conducted during the tours. It is instructional only.
    APPLICATION PROCESS
    The certification process for the Refrigeration Safety Awareness, the Ice Facility Operators, the Refrigeration Operators, and Power Engineers requires candidates to clear a TSBC certification Exam as well as a TSBC Evaluation. Both steps are independent of each other, and candidates can apply for either process at any stage, provided all prerequisites have been met. As an added support, we will assist you with all applications.
