Construction Safety Training System (CSTS)

Stay safe at work and advance your construction career with CSTS-09 certification.

CSTS-09 is a general safety awareness program for workers in the construction industry. The self-paced, computer-based course consists of 15 modules covering 82 topics presented in a user-friendly format in all CLAC offices. An upgrade course is also available if you have a CSTS Version 3.2 certificate issued by CLAC.

Both CSTS-09 and the upgrade include a generic WHMIS worker training module. You will need a full six- to eight-hour day to complete CSTS-09. The upgrade course takes about two hours to complete. Upon successful completion, you will receive a laminated certificate that includes the date of issue. The certificate does not expire.

If you require CSTS-09 or the upgrade course, please call any CLAC member centre and make an appointment to come in and take it. The upgrade can be taken in the office or online at home. Call any CLAC member centre to obtain a password to access the upgrade course at home.
