About HBOT accreditation
CPSA promotes patient safety and quality care in Alberta’s private hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) facilities by setting standards for all aspects of operations. We accredit all HBOT facilities where services are provided by physicians.
We develop best-practice standards and conduct on-site assessments when facilities open and reassess on a 4-year cycle. We also reassess if a facility adds a new service, renovates, moves, or if a concern is brought forward.
Information for new facilities
Register a new facility
If you would like to open a facility that offers HBOT, you need to get an assessment and CPSA accreditation before opening. When your facility is ready to start offering treatment, let us know and we’ll schedule and perform an on-site assessment to either accredit you or ask you to make some improvements. It costs $300 + GST to register a new facility. See more information about about facility annual fees and assessment fees.
Apply for approval to offer and supervise HBOT
Applicants must be specialists in anesthesiology or maintain a current certificate in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS).
You must also have completed a 40-hour course approved by the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medical Society.

About our standards
CPSA accreditation standards are developed based on input from field experts, best practices and research identified by other regulators, standard setting bodies and industry associations.
While accreditation decisions are made by the CPSA Medical Facility Accreditation Committee, CPSA Council approves all of our accreditation standards.
If you are the medical director of an accredited facility, or if your facility is undergoing accreditation, you may access our standards through our secure SharePoint site.
