The Industry Training Authority and the Transportation Career Development Association (transCDA) are offering assessments at Thompson Rivers University in January and February.

Challengers will have the opportunity to gain Red Seal certification through a variety of practical assessments of their skills and knowledge.

Red Seal certification is the gold standard for trades people. It is an indicator of skill for hiring employers and is the accepted credential across Canada.

Until now, the only way for skilled trades people to receive the Red Seal was to pass a lengthy, multiple-choice exam.

The alternative assessment for challengers pilot is geared towards individuals who have years of experience in industry, but gained their skills outside the formal Canadian apprenticeship system or face other barriers to certification.

Applications are being accepted until Dec. 15.

More information, including an application form, is available online at tcda.ca/contentpage.aspx?id=Challengers-HDET or by emailing gshorland@tcda.ca.
