Under the Regulation Respecting the Issuance of Competency Certificates, workers must take the course Santé et sécurité générale sur les chantiers de construction in order to obtain a competency certificate. The Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ), which is responsible for issuing certificates, must obtain proof that the worker has passed the course. The CCQ validates the courses for each worker with the Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail du secteur de la construction (ASP Construction).
