Red Seal Program

As a welder, you have probably wanted greater mobility across the provinces and territories to maintain continual employment and growth. Since 2000 with the establishment of the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program, welders in Ontario can now expand on their credentials. Journeypersons can challenge the “Red Seal” exam. The examination is instituted by the College of Trades. But how long has it been since you cracked open a book? Let Can-Weld Training & Testing Centre in association with Mark Abraham Consulting Services help you achieve your goal!

The Interprovincial (IP) Red Seal Certificate of Qualification Examination evaluates the ability to perform skills within the trade. As a designated RED SEAL TRADE, the Welder Examination is based on the skills as identified and agreed to by all participating provinces and territories in Canada.

Through our services we will establish your strengths and weaknesses in the theory of welding and have a Red Seal Certified Instructor customize a study package designed specifically for your needs. This package will be your study material along with “one-on-one” correspondence support. Along with this, there will be ample practice testing before registering to write the actual Certificate of Qualification Examination (C of Q Exam) with the College of Trades. Exams are instituted through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (M.T.C.U.)

However, prior to registering to challenging the C of Q Exam for Welders the following must be completed:

If you are a Journeyperson Welder you must:
• Hold a current practical C.W.B. or T.S.S.A. certificate/ticket.
Note: Must be a member of a union that welding is a component.

If you are an established Non-Union Welder you must:
• Hold a current practical C.W.B. or T.S.S.A. certificate/ticket.
• Provide proof of competency in all mandatory skills as identified in the Training Standard.
• Demonstrate 6,000 hours of on-the-job-training (A training unit completion form must be signed off to prove your hours as well as a cover letter from your previous on-the-job training stating the hours you worked with them).

If you are an Apprentice you must:
• Hold a current practical C.W.B. or T.S.S.A. certificate/ticket.
• Achieve competency in all mandatory skills as identified in the Training Standard.
• Complete the In-School Training as outlined in the Industry and Ministry-approved Curriculum Standard.
• Be competent in all required performances as defined in the Welder Training Standard and has successfully completed all schooling.

CWB and TSSA Testing
No matter what level your welding skills are, Can-Weld can help you achieve your goals set forth in the practical aspects of training at our faculty. In addition, Can-Weld is a C.W.B. Accredited and a T.S.S.A. Accredited Testing Centre.


If you are serious about achieving your (IP) Red Seal Certificate, it is strongly recommended that prior to challenging any practice test, you should purchase the C.W.B. Red Seal Welder Upgrade Program Modules (x4).
