What is Welder Red Seal Certification Process?

Posted in Featured, Newcomers

Published on September 17, 2017 with No Comments

All apprentices and individuals going through the Trade Equivalency Assessment are required to complete a welder practical assessment prior to the written examination. Upon successful completion of both the practical assessment and the written examination, a Certificate of Qualification with a Red Seal Endorsement (RSE) will be issued. Did you know, this has been in forces since March 2017. The Weekly Asian Connections brings to you a detail of the same on the request of certain readers.

For the practical assessment, apprentices and Trade Equivalency Assessment applicants must complete six welding processes and the oxy-fuel cutting component, as outlined here-Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW – 3G), Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW – 3F and 4G), Gas metal arc welding (GMAW – 1G), Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW – 2G), Flux cored arc welding (FCAW – 3F and 4G), Oxy-fuel cutting

Apprentices will complete the welding practical assessment during the in-school portion of their apprenticeship.

Individuals going through the Trade Equivalency Assessment will be required to complete the welder practical assessment at a designated testing centre in the province. Once completed, the Trade Equivalency Assessment applicant must submit proof of completion to the Ontario College of Trades as part of their Trade Equivalency Assessment application. Proof of completion of the practical assessment is necessary in order to be approved to write the written examination. Click here for more information on the Trade Equivalency Assessment.

Welding testing centres have been set-up across the province for Trade Equivalency Assessment applicants to register and complete the testing. For a list of testing centers and further information on the practical assessment, you can download the document from the link http://www.collegeoftrades.ca/wp-content/uploads/Ontario-Welder-Practical-Assessment.revised.pdf.

Experienced welders who have proof of corresponding Canadian Welding Bureau or American Society of Mechanical Engineers certifications (tickets) for any or all Tests 1 through 6, only have to complete the missing component(s) and the oxy-fuel cutting component of the practical assessment.
