“Cours de connaissance générale de l'industrie de la construction”

Accepted applicants who pass the Cours de connaissance générale de l'industrie de la construction (CCGIC) automatically obtain an occupation competency certificate (OCC) if they demonstrate successful completion of the Santé et sécurité générale sur les chantiers de construction course. For more information about the Santé and sécurité course, applicants may contact ASP Construction, the school boards that offer this training or their union association

After candidates pass the CCGIC, the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) will renew the certificate of holders who have subsequently worked 150 hours over a period of 12 months (however, hours must have been reported in the employers’ monthly reports). If the 150-hour minimum has not been reached, the certificate will be renewed only if the holder submits an employment guarantee for 150 hours over a period of no more than three months, from a single employer registered with the CCQ.
