Registered Playground Practitioner
Ontario Parks Association (OPA) developed the Registered Playground Practitioner Program to meet the needs of those involved with, and responsible for, the installation, inspection, and maintenance of public playspaces and playground facilities.
Upon completion of the program and achievement of a passing grade in the written examination(s) the participant will be registered by the Ontario Parks Association as a "Playground Practitioner" and is qualified to inspect playgrounds. The OPA Registered Playground Practitioner Program is recognized as a playground safety course for inspectors by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.
