Certification Matters

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

It is important to me to stay current in the industries evolving products and techniques.  As a result I believe in gaining as much education within the trade as possible and so am active in the journeyperson/apprenticeship education training for my employees.  Roofing is a certifiable trade with potential for red seal endorsement.  Below is an excerpt from red-seal.ca which helps explain a bit more what the Red Seal Certificate represents.

The Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program (also known as the Red Seal Program) was established more than 50 years ago to provide greater mobility across Canada for skilled workers. Today it represents a standard of excellence for industry. Through the Program, tradespersons are able to obtain a Red Seal endorsement on their provincial/territorial certificates by successfully completing an interprovincial Red Seal examination. The Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program acknowledges their competence and ensures recognition of their certification throughout Canada without further examination.
