Program Description

If you are an experienced tradesperson, you may be eligible to write the Interprovincial Red Seal Exam and achieve Journeyman status. Your goal could be to advance in your career, earn a higher wage, immigrate to Canada, or simply have past work experience validated. The Canadian Journeyman Preparation Program is designed to help experienced individuals strengthen their technical knowledge, understand the goals and methodologies of Interprovincial Red Seal examinations, and identify gaps in occupational skills. The study materials are discussed and interpreted, providing valuable insight into the structure, composition and goals of Interprovincial Red Seal examinations.

The course consists of 17 units in which students will have access to 40 hours of materials including videos, PDFs, weblinks, activities, and quizzes.
