Ontario JHSC Certification Training


Dunk & Associates is proud to deliver CPO approved Part 1 Training.


Part 1 Training helps organizations provide basic training to workplace health and safety representatives and fulfill their legal requirements. Dunk & Associates’ Part 1 meets and exceeds the minimum standards set out by the Ministry and Labour, Skill, Training and Development (MLTSD) and is applicable to any workplace in Ontario, regardless of sector.


Certification Part 1 gives participants a full understanding of occupational health and safety legislation, including rights and responsibilities of the workplace parties and certified representatives, in particular. Equally important, participants learn how to identify, assess, control, and eliminate workplace hazards.


Dunk & Associates' Certification Part 1 is composed of six (6) learning modules and a final evaluation.

  1. Module 1: Foundational Knowledge

  2. Module 2: Safety Committees and How They Work

  3. Module 3: Hazards and Your Health

  4. Module 4: Workplace Inspections

  5. Module 5: Dealing with Hazards

  6. Module 6: Reporting and Investigations



There are a variety of evaluation methods used throughout Certification. They are both formative and summative. A detailed breakdown of evaluation is provided in your participant manual.

During each module, there are a variety of activities to put your knowledge through the test. These activities are done either individually or as a group.


At the end of each module, participants are asked to complete a module quiz to evaluate what has been learned. Don't worry, your score doesn't matter and questions are designed to assist you when you get to your final Part 1 evaluation.


The final Part 1 evaluation is completed when all six Part 1 modules have been completed. This final evaluation consists of 31 multiple-choice and true/false questions. Participants must achieve a score of 75% in order to pass Certification Part 1 and receive their Certificate of Completion. Participants are given instant feedback and are able to complete the test again, if required. When the evaluation and all program components are completed, the participant receives their certificate of successful completion and their information is shared with the MLTSD.


Dunk & Associates Part 1 Certification is currently delivered in two formats; in-class and via distance (webinar).

A schedule of available distance sessions is posted under the training schedule. We do require at least 6 learners in each session, to a maximum of 25.


Please be aware that if you register for a Part 1 session via distance or in-class, you are committed to attending it. Missing a registered webinar will require a $75 administration fee to reschedule. Because numbers are limited, not attending a session takes away the ability for another learner to attend. If you need to cancel, please contact Dunk & Associates within 2 business days of the scheduled session.

In addition, Dunk & Associates can also offer training in-person (delivered as three full days of training) at your own location. Contact us for more information. Additional fees apply.

The training experience is consistent regardless of the method selected.

Whether online or in-person, facilitators will lead and guide participants through the learning outcomes. We include discussions, pop quizzes, activities, legislation look-ups, and more. Participants are asked to share stories, experiences and participate in discussions.


See the approximate time allocation below for Part 1 Training. Regardless of delivery format, Part 1 is comprised of three full days of training. Time commitment may be longer or shorter based on the number of questions generated by the group. Learners should be prepared to be at each session from 8:00am until 4:30pm each day.

Please note that training via distance learning requires each learner's complete time and attention. This means being online, present and participating throughout the entire duration of the session (start to end). Learners should be prepared to be online promptly at the designated start time.
