To set minimum requirements for building officials who provide services to local authorities, the Province of Saskatchewan adopts three primary classes of licence under which building officials are authorized to provide plan review, inspection and enforcement services, categorized by major occupancy and size of buildings.

  • Class 1 – covers one and two-unit dwellings.
  • Class 2 – covers any buildings that fall under Part 9 of the National Building Code, including Class 1.
  • Class 3 – covers any buildings under the National Building Code, including Classes 1 and 2.

Southeast College administers BSL Building Official Class 1, 2 and 3 Examinations. They do bookings, communicate with Approved Testing Centres and invigilators, collect fees, mark exams and advise of results.
