SMS Self-Audit Re-Qualification

Regulations in Alberta require that industrial railway employees performing SMS Self-Audits be requalified once every three years.

This course addresses the knowledge of the participant by means of a review of the applicable subject matter and a test. A certificate of completion will be issued upon successful completion of the course. It is still incumbent upon the employees’s company to declare whether the person is qualified to perform the work.

Note: Remember to download the latest version of the SMS audit protocols from the Alberta Transportation website before each SMS audit you do.
