Important Changes to the Educational Requirement of the Building Science Specialist of Ontario (BSSO) Designation

OBEC is continuously looking to improve access for all members who wish to obtain their BSSO designation. OBEC is now introducing a series of professional examinations which will allow members to demonstrate that they meet the educational requirements of the BSSO designation.  While there are a number of reasons for this change, the primary reason for developing these standardized exams is to provide opportunities for OBEC members across Ontario to achieve the BSSO designation.  To further broaden access to the educational foundation for the BSSO, OBEC is also working with colleges and universities across Ontario to provide more options for building science education in other parts of the province.
