Skills Pass and the Ministry of Labour are Live

By | news

On March 4th, 2019 the Ministry of Labour has officially launched with SkillsPass for Working at Heights (WAH) and Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) Certification training records. The database is called the Certification Management System (CMS) and it is powered by SkillsPass. The database is secure, meeting Ontario Government strict standards for privacy and security.

As a result of these changes, the Ministry of Labour is no longer printing and mailing CPO training cards as they now will be delivered electronically using SkillsPass.
