Training Requirements

Completing the training is one of the first steps to achieving RPM certification.

Once you have completed registration with RPM and met with one of our advisors, you will begin your training.  We have three types of training at RPM: certification courses, program development courses, and CCOHS and SAFE Work Manitoba e-courses. Certification courses are required for certification.

Certification Courses

There are four required training modules to take to achieve SAFE Work Certification: Safety & Health Leadership, Principles of Safety & Health Management, Maintenance Auditor, and one of Safety & Health Committee OR Safety Representative (depending on the size of your organization). You must be registered in the program to take these courses.  These are full day courses.  You will be provided with a wealth of resources to take back to your business, including updated legislation and templates to customize for your workplace.

Program Development Courses

Program Development courses reflect the varied elements of a safety and health program as outlined in the Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health Act and Regulation and Canada Labour Code Part II. Each course focuses on a separate element and includes templates and materials to make them easily adaptable to an individual workplace. Our courses are being updated regularly and new training dates are scheduled regularly.  We do offer some of our Program Development courses as e-courses, as well.

E-Courses (with CCOHS and SAFE Work Manitoba)

RPM has partnered with SAFE Work Manitoba and the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) to offer many e-learning courses. You can register as a single user or register multiple users (please click on the Facilitator manual link once at the CCOHS website for multi-user registration). A membership is not required and the courses are free of charge.
