Construction Safety Training System (CSTS-09) Upgrade


The information contained in the CSTS Upgrade was intended to be a temporary measure designed to help people who had previously taken CSTS v3.2 to reach the new CSTS-09 course standard. This has been our practice for eight years now, and the time has come to both look at upgrading CSTS again, and to discontinue use of the 2009 upgrade option. If you are one of the few registrants who over the last eight years has not yet completed the CSTS-09 Upgrade but wish to, you will have until May 31, 2017 to register and complete this part of the training.
To determine your eligibility in completing the CSTS-09 upgrade, please refer to your student portal account, or feel free to give us a call for assistance if you prefer.


The ACSA has released a new version of Construction Safety Training System (CSTS-09) with new video, graphics and new and updated course content. An upgrade is being made available for those interested in upgrading their certification to the new version. All students who have completed CSTS v3.2 between Jan. 1st, 2004 and October 31st, 2010 and have an ACSA registered completion certificate will be able to take this online course free of charge. The training is done individually and will take, on average, 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. Students who complete the upgrade course will receive a CSTS-09U certificate from the ACSA.

Please be aware that the ACSA will only issue certificates for the CSTS-09 Upgrade course to those that have a registered CSTS v3.2 certificate, as described above. If your CSTS certificate is issued by another organization you will need to discuss your access with them.
