Red Seal Program: A Civilian Credential for Military Trades

The Red Seal Program sets common standards to assess the skilled of tradespeople across Canada. Tradespersons who have successfully passed the Red Seal exam receive a Red Seal endorsement on their trade certificate. A Red Seal in your trade allows you to practice your trade in participating provinces and territories.
The Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program and the Canadian Forces have identified select civilian and military trades that are very similar. Provincial and territorial certifying authorities can recognize skills acquired and applied in the Forces for advanced standing towards civilian certification. If you have earned your QL5 in the Canadian Forces, learn how you can achieve a civilian credential with a Red Seal.
