As the labour market becomes more competitive, employers are hiring people with credentials that attest to their skills. By completing your apprenticeship program and obtaining a Certificate of Qualification, you will become a journeyperson and be recognized as a professional in your trade.
In many trades, when you obtain a Certificate of Qualification, you also get Red Seal or interprovincial status. This means your trade skills and training are recognized in other jurisdictions in Canada without further examination or testing.
Complete the full apprenticeship journey to certification and become a "Professional by Trade".
