The British Columbia Institute of Technology has announced that its Occupational Health and Safety diploma program and Advanced Safety Management certificate program are now accredited by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). IOSH accreditation verifies that the programs meet international standards for safety and health education. Program graduates will be eligible for Technical Membership with IOSH after one year of professional experience. Members have access to networking opportunities and professional development resources through IOSH. BCIT says it is the first postsecondary institution to receive IOSH accreditation in North America.
