Mine Supervisor Certification!

The following information is from the British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resource

The launch date for the online training and certification for Mine Supervisors is scheduled for April 16, 2018.

Note: The shopping cart link to the Mine Supervisor Certification will be added once the program is live and active. The link will be available on April 16, 2018.

A new provision, added in February 2017 to the Code, was the reintroduction of a Supervisor’s Certification. This certification was reintroduced to ensure a common understanding of the Code, to encourage worker safety and to ensure supervisors on a mine site are aware of their responsibilities under the Code. This requirement comes into force on June 1, 2018.

The provision requires that anyone supervising six or fewer people on an active mine operation or in other areas of a mine, such as a mill, tailings storage facility, lab or maintenance area or shop, must complete their Supervisor’s Certification. It applies to all mine sites in the province including major mines, exploration sites, sand and gravel and placer operations and quarries.

This certification will be available online and is expected to launch mid-April 2018. Links to the online registration will be added to this site once the program is available. The cost for a Supervisor Certification is $100 and must be renewed every five years.
