What is the VOL VCA

The VOL VCA is a structured knowledge of occupational safety, health and the environment. In contrast to the Basic VCA, which looks at these topics from the employee’s point of view, the VOL VCA deals with these issues from the perspective of the employer and personnel manager.

If you wish to obtain a VOL VCA certificate, all you need to do is take this course and pass the examination. Choose a date that suits you and sign up for a one-day course including the VOL VCA exam.
