The Red Seal Program encourages the standardization of apprenticeship training and certification programs across Canada.  The program is administered by the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA) in each province and territory. A national occupational analysis of each Red Seal trade is used as a base document for inter provincial exams and is encouraged for use in curriculum development. 
For more information about the Red Seal and how to obtain it, visit the Red Seal website
