As of August 10, 2009 the 2009 CEC is in effect and contractors may work under either code until October 10, where the 2009 code takes full effect. Contractors may not mix and match codes but can chose 1 or the other during the 2 months.

FSR will require 24 hours every code cycle or about 8 hours of approved training per year. The trick is to determine what training will be recognized. The local BCSA inspectors have regular Teck talks which offer free 2 hour sessions once a month on varying subjects as 1 source for these credits. A 2 day Arc Flash seminar would get you 16 hours in 1 shot.
I can see there could be a challenge for some FSR to get the 24 hours especially once they have waded through 1 or 2 upgrade courses.
