The Construction Safety Training System certification course is exclusively available online. It consists of 15 modules, each of which is graded independently. Because it is an at-home online course, there is no time limit for completing it; the BC Construction Safety Alliance estimates it takes six to seven hours.
The course is targeted towards newcomers and people who have never received training in construction safety. The topics it covers include equipment use, preventing falls, personal protective equipment and driving. As of 2015, the Construction Safety Training System certification course does not function on mobile devices. The certificate for completing the course is valid throughout Canada.
