Some jobs on the Bluecrew app may require Crew Members to provide certification in order to work in those positions. When Workplaces indicate a certification requirement, Crew Members are required to confirm they have a non-expired certification, upload proof of the certification, and bring a copy of the certification with them to every shift of their assignment. When this is required for a job, Crew Members will see a “Certification Required” icon on the position detail page and will only be assigned to the job after uploading proof of the certification.
You will be required to show a copy of this certification to your supervisor on your first day and bring it with you to every shift. Providing false information or invalid certifications may result in your account being deactivated and no longer being able to work with Bluecrew.
How do I know if a certification is required?
When you click into a position from the Find Work page, you will see a “Certification Required” icon and details of the certification type in the job requirements section. If a certification is required for the job, you will be required to provide proof of meeting this requirement before getting assigned to the job. Within the position details, you will see the type of certification needed for the job.

Why am I not able to get this job?

I don't want to show/travel with my certification once I upload?
We ask that you bring the certification with you to every shift of the assignment in the event there is a request to view your certificate by the supervisor or the health department.

You will have a reminder on your dashboard to bring the certification with you to every shift.
