The use of Special Effect Pyrotechnics crosses over a wide and varied number of fields. Most are described for use in the entertainment industry; however, some also use it for experimentation and simulation. A pyro-technician reproducing a witch’s appearance during a stage play, a senior pyro-technician creating dramatic visual effects in a rock concert, a special effects technician simulating the destruction of structures in a film scene; all these people are using pyrotechnic special effect devices and require certification under Canadian Federal law. To use Display Fireworks or Pyrotechnic Special Effects, you must be certified by Natural Resources Canada.

The first step to Fireworks Operator certification in Canada is successfully completing this Pyrotechnics Safety and Legal Awareness Training Course. Upon completion you can then apply to the ERD to obtain a base level Operators Certificate. The course we are offering is part of the “certified” course provider program and is a combination of the basic materials offered in the ERD courses as well as the years of experience and knowledge of Bleeding Art industries.

The course includes:

  • Classroom theory of entertainment pyrotechnics
  • Legal awareness of the ERD requirements
  • A brief overview of the Alberta Safety codes
  • Practical demonstration of basic entertainment pyrotechnic devices
  • A digital copy of the Special Effects Pyrotechnics Manual (a hard copy can be purchased for an additional cost plus shipping)
  • A test (In order to qualify as a Pyrotechnician you must successfully complete this course and pass a written test (>70%), at which time you will receive a Course Completion Certificate. You can then apply to the Explosives Regulatory Division to obtain your Fireworks Operator Certificate. The cost to obtain your Certificate is paid to Natural Resources Canada and is a separate fee from the actual course. Certificate is valid for 5 years from date of issue.
  • A certificate of completion  

The course is held online from 10 am to 4:30 MST (mountain standard time). An electronic copy of the manual will be forwarded in advance. If you would also like a hard copy manual sent, please choose that option in the pricing selection. Note: must be 18 years of age or older.
