Fall Protection certificate holders that have expired within the last six (6) months are eligible for this program. This program is not for first-time certification, and it can be taken a maximum of one (1) time before classroom training is required for re-certification.

Once the student is registered for the self-study program, they will receive a PDF of the student manual along with the link to the final online quiz through Survey Monkey. The self-study program is designed to be completed on the student's own time and pace. Once the student feels comfortable with the material, they are required to complete the final quiz on Survey Monkey.

Results will be emailed to the student upon completion of the final quiz, and an opportunity for the student to conduct the practical portion of this course will be scheduled. The practical portion consists of properly fitting a full body harness in front of an OH&S advisor via Zoom (9:00AM or 6:00PM Thursdays). Please note: The student needs to provide their own full body harness.

A Fall Protection Basic training certificate will be presented as a result of a successful practical demonstration that meets the requirements of the program. This certificate will also be available on the student's personal and company training portal. As with our in classroom course, the training certificate will be valid for three (3) years from the date of completion. If the student did not meet the passing requirements, they will be contacted by an OH&S Advisor and offered support.
