The Gold Seal Certification program for Canadian construction management professionals has launched a new online application and study portal.
The application portal is designed to replace paper-based applications.
Online applications are currently available in English, with French applications to be made available by March 2013.
The new system is designed to be simple to use, with applicants required to fill in basic personal information, scanned copies of their certificates, information detailing their experience and a debit or credit card for payment.
The application is sent to the local construction association for review, followed by a final review by a national reviewer.
Applicants can log in to review the status of their applications and are also sent emails when the application is sent from one stage to another.
The new study portal, designed to help prepare applicants for Gold Seal Certification exams, is currently available for the construction safety coordinator designation and all designations in the general contracting discipline.
The portal is scheduled to be available for all disciplines by the end of 2013.
