Training Expiry What Courses expire and when?

No Set Expiry

The majority of courses you will take do not have a set expiry date – but it is expected that the content be reviewed on an annual basis in-house, specific to your own hazards and needs. However if you have not used the skills learned in a period of time then due diligence suggests that you re-take the course to ensure the information is fresh and clear in your mind.

Examples of courses without an expiry date are WHMIS/GHS, Bill 168, Fall Protection, etc.


Set Expiry

There are a few courses where a set expiry term has been mandated:

  • Working at Heights (Construction): 3 years
  • Lift Truck: 3 years
  • Transportation of Dangerous Goods: 3 years
  • First Aid: 3 years


How can ICSS help?

ICSS tracks all training and will send updates prior to your training expiring to the Health and Safety contact for your company. In the month prior to your training expiring the contact will receive a notice and information regarding upcoming courses or booking training.
