Obtain a Building Science Specialist of Ontario (BSSO)

News – Important Update:

We at the School have been in partnership with Ontario Building Envelope Council (OBEC) since 2009 and work closely with the organization to ensure our courses remain relevant to industry standards, assist learners in developing needed competencies, and achieve their Building Science Specialist of Ontario (BSSO) designation.

OBEC has recently changed the requirements for the BSSO designation. Three standardized examinations will now be required to achieve the designation. The main reason for developing standardized exams is to provide OBEC members across Ontario with greater accessibility and flexibility to achieve the BSSO designation. Click here for more details.

The Association may offer certifications in addition to the one(s) identified. The University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies is committed to providing current and accurate information about the requirements to earn the certification(s) identified. Contact the Association to confirm your personal pathway to the certification, based on your education and professional experience.
