If you are an occupational health and safety professional with 3 or more years of experience, you may be eligible for the CRSP designation. There are thousands of CRSPs in Canada.  The CRSP is a designation that provides evidence of professional status and experience that employers are looking for.  Under charter from the federal government the designation is awarded to those persons who have achieved a professional level of competence in accident prevention.  The Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals (BCRSP) awards the CRSP to a select few academically qualified, technically prepared candidates.  The UNB CRSP Prep course is a critical tool to help you to earn your CRSP designation.
