CCPO Provisional Certificates

The following is an excerpt from G20.26.6 Operator certification. If you are a concrete pump operator or employer in BC, the following applies to you.

“In recognition of the time it will take for all operators covered by the requirement to be tested and become certified, BCCSA is modifying its process and will be issuing provisional certificates when an operator has completed both the following:

  • Successfully completed the written exam
  • Paid for and scheduled a practical proficiency assessment

WorkSafeBC will recognize these provisional certificates until November 1, 2024. After that date, provisional certificates will no longer be accepted, and operators without a full certificate may be issued orders unless they are operating the concrete pump or placing boom under the supervision of a person who holds a valid concrete pump operator's certificate and in accordance with the directions of that certificate holder.” WorkSafeBC

Note, while BCCSA is making every effort to complete practical assessments for all operators before the extension deadline of November 1, 2024, due the large influx of applicants, a practical assessment is not guaranteed by July 1st. If you are an operator requiring certification, we urge you to register in the CCPO portal, complete your written examination, and pay for your practical exam as soon as possible.
