CSTS Training

Our Contractors and Clients have adopted the Construction Safety Training Systems (CSTS) training program. All Local 488 Members and Permits dispatched to any sites must have completed the program. The card that is issued after completion is valid for 3 years.

As of January 17, 2011 your CSTS Record Certification will be Changed.

If you completed version 3.2 with us (CSTS as of Jan 1, 2004) you will be able to do CSTS-09 (Upgrade) which has four (4) modules. It will take an average of 3 hrs. to complete at no extra cost.

If completed CSTS PRIOR to Jan 1, 2004 you will need to take CSTS-09 modules 1-15 at no extra cost for members. Non-members cost will be $65.00 unless you have a dispatch slip. It will take an average of 6-8 hrs. to complete the course.
