COVID-19 VIRUS Announcement

Participants in IMSA Certification Schools and IMSA BC sponsored events, while generally not in the COVID-19 Virus high risk category, are an integral part of the Public Safety, Public Infrastructure and Emergency Operations resource base.  In consideration of this, the IMSA BC Board of Directors has decided to postpone upcoming Certification Schools until late October or as the situation requires.  Our AGM has been cancelled for this year.  Participants on waiting lists or registered for Certification Schools will be notified by email as events unfold.

BIG NEWS - ONLINE CERTIFICATION is Finally Coming!

IMSA International has been contemplating an online registration system for some years now.  The COVID restrictions were the push to get it into reality!  If all works "as advertised" the BC section will be able to provide Certification schools both in person, online or a combination.  Writing the exam will require either in person proctoring or a desktop/laptop/tablet equipped with camera and microphone.  If you ZOOM, you are ready to go!  The online platform is scheduled to go live in February but some preparation by the moderators is required so we are hoping to be ready for the usual Spring Certification School offerings.

Wishing everybody all the best for a Safe (and socialy distanced) Holiday Season! We all hope that 2021 will bring better times!
