The University of Fredericton (UFred) is excited to offer an innovative CRSP Pathway to students seeking to obtain the CRSP designation. Fulfilling the educational component required by the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP), the Pathway would see students enrol in the Certificate in Health, Safety, and Environmental Management (CHSEP) and then proceed through the Diploma in Safety, Health, and Environmental Management (SHEM). For the remainder of this academic year (until August 31, 2018), UFred is significantly reducing the cost of these programs for new Pathway students.
The Pathway, developed by UFred in response to forthcoming eligibility changes from the BCRSP, is a fully online experience. This means OHS students can complete the entire Pathway without leaving their jobs. Students will enjoy a work-school balance that allows them to take new concepts from the classroom and immediately apply them to their careers. Additionally, UFred’s CRSP will integrate new courses including fire safety and communication. These new additions will allow the student to fulfill the required 900 hours of study following completion of the Pathway.
The Pathway aims to provide a seamless way for OHS students to formalize their credentials through the BCRSP. UFred seeks to alleviate financial and workload burdens on applicants by providing an economical, flexible, and complete method to achieve accreditation.
