BCMSA training helps bring your health & safety goals to life.
We deliver courses for our members (municipalities) when they request them. If there are any sessions with seats available they will be shown on the Classroom Calendar.
Same amazing content, new delivery model!
BCMSA Virtual training will mirror our in-person classroom training sessions where employees will be able to access online courses remotely and interact with an instructor via Zoom technology. This training will help our municipalities remain current with WorkSafeBC regulations. Each of the courses offered will remain consistent with our in-class format – including curriculum, criteria, activities, length and exam.
There may be additional charges for travel.
Prices listed below are for members of the BC Municipal Safety Association (Local Government employers who are part of the Local Government and Related Operations Classification with WorkSafeBC). Non-member pricing is generally 1.5 times member pricing; please contact BCMSA for more information.

Several of our training programs have been granted CEU’s from the Environmental Operators Certification Program (EOCP). Information on available CEU’s are noted in the Course Catalogue.
CEU’s are available retroactively, so if you have taken one of these courses and would like to submit them for credits, please contact us for the form.
Participants are provided with an EOCP Evaluation form at the training session. For those who are EOCP-certified, please note that it is the responsibility of your organization, or the individual EOCP member, to forward a copy of the form to EOCP to ensure the appropriate Continuing Education Units are credited to his/her name, and to pay any associated fees levied by the EOCP. The BC Municipal Safety Association will not provide this information or payment on their behalf.
