Hi there!
I know it has been a long time since you posted this message but i am new to this forum and have been looking through some threads that might give my husband some advice regarding plumbing in canada! I was just wondering how your husband got on in the end with the red seal exam? Did he have to do some training first, or was he able to take the exam straight away? Did he find it difficult and much different compaired with UK plumbing procedures?
Sorry for asking so many questions but at the moment we are starting to panic about the whole thing!!!

Hi it is different from the uk you have to sit the exam the questions are multiple choice , try sait in calgary to see if they do any courses or see if you employer will help with training , they do some distance courses,

you need on the job training and go to a collage I did my gas ticket by my self found it hard work , basically its just plumbing you just have to get to know how they do it here thats the bit you will pick up very quick, its not retraining just doing it there way thats all.

hope this helps
