The University of Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Certificate program is a cornerstone for safety in the province. Whether a student is currently a practicing occupational health and safety professional or someone who aspires to a career in health and safety, this program prepares practitioners with skills and knowledge to create, implement, and evaluate health and safety programs in a wide variety of occupational settings.

The courses in the Occupational Health and Safety Certificate program are closely aligned with the Board of Canadian Registered Safety Professionals’ Canadian Registered Safety Technician (CRST) accreditation requirements (see: OHS — BCR­SP CEU equivalency). This alignment serves two purposes: it allows the program to meet industry needs and, at the same time, gives graduates a more straightforward path to build their health and safety careers.

Alumni from the program include environmental health officers, public health inspectors, construction and production foremen and supervisors, maintenance superintendents, industrial hygienists, occupational health nurses, engineering and instrument technicians, and chemical technologists.

Graduates are employed across a wide range of industry sectors, including oil and gas, aviation, construction, education, health care, manufacturing, municipalities, mining, forestry, government agencies, and private businesses.

I graduated from uofa with an economics degree and then worked for my my family's manufacturing business. After 3 and a half years, I knew I needed help taking the company to the next level but I needed to keep working. The online MBA was the perfect solution.

After 36 months of studying part-time, I can say my business skills are beyond where I thought they would be. What I learned about leadership and operations I use every single day. I was surprised that I was also able to network and build relationships with my group even though I had the flexibility to choose a lot of my own courses as I went.

The other reason I choose the program is because of the flexible start dates. I kept putting this decision off, so when I was finally ready, I didn't have to wait another few semester to get going.

My time at the sofa has been very good so far. The instructors are almost always happy to help but there ares some instructors that don't really explain concepts well. There are also many amazing cubs to join and after school activities. Sometimes paint nights are organized or baking note, trivia nights or even games nights. They are all very welcoming and nice.
