Red Seal Program

The Red Seal Program, formally known as the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program, is a program that sets common standards to assess the skills of tradespeople across Canada. Industry is heavily involved in developing the national standard for each trade. It is a partnership between the federal government and provinces and territories, which are responsible for apprenticeship training and trade certification in their jurisdictions.
Tradespersons who have successfully passed the Red Seal examination receive a Red Seal endorsement on their provincial/territorial trade certificate. The Red Seal, when affixed to a provincial or territorial trade certificate, indicates that a tradesperson has demonstrated the knowledge required for the national standard in that trade.

To get Red Seal certification or to qualify for a Red Seal, the first requirement is you must hold a valid certificate in a trade or occupation that is included in the Red Seal Program. Next step is to write and pass the Red Seal Examination. To enable you to write the examination, you have to first register at one of the provincial and territorial apprenticeship and certification authority who administer these examinations. Then submit the correct application, correct fee, write and pass the Red Seal examination. Most Canadian provinces and territories have application forms available on their websites. The website furnishes details about the registration process for Red Seal examination, the important studies sources, sample questions, counselling sheets, and necessary reading materials for you to write Red Seal examination.
