Mike Gosselin receiving the 2013 Bert Caine Award from Pat Miller

The Bert Caine Award is presented by the Environmental Operators Certification Program in recognition of outstanding, long term service to the certification program. The award is named in honour of Mr. B. D. Caine, the first secretary/treasurer of the program. Bert served in that capacity for twenty-four years, and at times almost singlehandedly carried the program forward. He was instrumental in bringing the certification program from an ad-hoc group of concerned individuals, through to a formally constituted body recognized throughout B.C. and across North America. Bert also served as the program representative when the Board became a charter member of the Associations of Boards of Certification and for many years served on the Canadian Committee on Certification and Training.

Bert’s efforts and determination resulted in a program which is now able to stand on its own and provide the assurance to everyone concerned of the competence of our Operators.
