They Are Coming... I have not seen the Official Document yet

http://www.bcelectrician.com/fsrwarning.html

Les I first opened the link in fire fox and it prompted me to download a plug in. After I opened in IE to print the page I understand why fire fox prompted for the plug in all of a sudden pink Floyds "money" started to play laugh

I am hoping some of this can be done online, or though the Open Learning Agency.

I have no idea as to costs.

I hope the trade educational institutes can come up with condensed refresher courses specifically directed to this requirement. I dont think the concept is a bad one, especially when the safety authority doesnt even inspect most contractor installs in my area. Makes you wonder what kind of installs are getting done out there.

As to the refresher Courses I bought the CEC CD for 2006 for 325.00 after S&H.
I am constantly referring and searching the rules for what may apply to any particular job.
I see this year the CD is 325.00 plus S&H . I actually use the CD more than the Code Book as i can print off a page or 2 if needed.
Now I see the new Code book is 150.00 it really wasnt that long ago when the CEC ran about 30.00. I guess i should quadruple my rates seeing how CSA can.

Hahahahahha! Me too!


This is a thorn in the side for a small one-man shop such as myself in a somewhat remote location. My customers aren't going to like my new rates.... *cough* rapidly approaching $100/hour *cough*

Stupid question, what's FSR stand for? Is it a BC only thing?
