The mentor program rewards those who become mentors and ensures safety professionals who perform quality work are certified.

BCSP Professional Advancement Mentor Program

Many BCSP certificants have encouraged, assisted, or required fellow safety professionals, colleagues, or peers to pursue certification as a means to advancing their careers. Created specifically to recognize these certificants’ role in supporting the career development of others, the mentor program provides BCSP exam candidates a means to recognize those who supported them in their pursuit of certification.

The mentor program provides a method by which we can recognize those encouraging quality safety practitioners to attain certification. By filling out the Professional Advancement Mentor Form, you help us recognize mentors and their work with their peers, colleagues, and other safety professionals.

Here’s how it works:

  • Participants should complete the Professional Advancement Mentor Form, submitting mentors’ information and that of the peer, colleague, or other safety practitioner who is applying for a BCSP certification – the mentee.
  • If the mentee’s application is approved, BCSP will list the Mentor and Mentee in our Mentoring Honor Roll.
  • Mentors credited through the BCSP Mentor Program for two (2) consecutive years may request to be listed as a long-standing mentor on the BCSP Mentoring webpage.
  • Mentors will be publicly recognized in material published by BCSP.

We look forward to recognizing your contribution to the advancement of the safety profession through the achievement of others.

Please note: Mentoring will only be recognized if done in addition to regular work activity.
