Cool Red Seal

Hi Bud,
Do you think that you could get a copy of one of these Red Seal tests. They would be a Great Learning Tool. I wish the USA had something like the Red Seal. dupree

I don't think it is possible to get even get a practice test I remember writing a few mock tests but we had to give them back at the end of the day. It is a pretty closely kept secret, even the instructors have know idea what is exactly on the test.

The test is guarded to the extreme.
Even your scribble sheets are monitored and shredded.
When you get your results, they tell you what percentage of the questions you answered correctly, without telling you any answers.
So, for instance, if you got 8 out of 10 on one particular section, you will never know which questions you answered wrong.

By the way, the sheet metal trade is very heavily regulated here.
I can't have a helper on the job unless he or she is registered as an apprentice.
My son (university student) is going to work with me this summer.
He has no intention of following up on the trade, but I had to sign him up as an apprentice so he can legally work with me.

Default Canadian Red Seal

I will be writing my Red Seal exam next Friday. Like the previous people, getting information on the exam is sketchy. In fact, the instructors said that they have never seen the exam so hopefully things go well.

If anybody has any sample questions, tips, or suggestions, please send them my way.

Thanks
