Support the Re-designation of the Sprinkler System Installer Trade (Compulsory Certification)
The Alberta Sprinkler Compulsory Certification Coalition is in the process of submitting an application to the Government of Alberta requesting that the trade status of Sprinkler System Installer be re-classified as a compulsory trade. The Sprinkler System Installer trade in Alberta is currently the only pipe trade (Plumber, Steamfitter, and Boilermaker) that is not a compulsory trade. This means there are no minimum levels of training, certification, knowledge, or work experience required to install, repair, test and inspect fire sprinkler systems in Alberta.
Re-classifying the Sprinkler System Installer trade as a compulsory trade in Alberta will help ensure and provide a proper level of safety to all Albertan consumers, trade workers, first responders, business owners and operators. In order to help ensure our application receives a positive response from the Government of Alberta, we are currently seeking support from individuals, companies and industry stakeholders to demonstrate to the Government of Alberta the need to re-classify the Sprinkler System Installer trade as a compulsory trade.
