Sign-off Authority Prior Experience
In order to support the particular needs of this trade, sponsors who are not certified Red Seal Construction Craft Workers can apply for the CCW alternate Supervision and Sign-off Authority (SOA). Sponsors granted the alternate SOA are able to supervise and sign-off apprentices for certification.
The alternate model for granting Supervision and Sign-off Authorization will be available until December 31, 2022. Please see the documents below for details on eligibility requirements.
|Application Form||Personal information and exams scheduling information|
|Employer Declaration||Document of relevant work experience|
|Statutory Declaration||Attestation to self-employement/work experience when employer can't be contacted|
Note that Supervision and Sign-off Authority is not the same as trade certification. Supervision and Sign-off Authority registration numbers are issued solely for the purpose of enabling sponsors and/or tradespersons to direct and supervise the work-based training of apprentices and recommend apprentices for certification. If you would like to pursue certification in your trade you will be required to apply to challenge the exam and submit a Challenge Application package.
