Information on programs that help you build your career following certification

For Holders of a Recognized Trade Credential
If you were previously certified outside Alberta and your certificate is recognized in Alberta, you do not require an Alberta certificate. If you wish to have an Alberta document that proves to Alberta employers that you are permitted to work in Alberta, the Equivalency Program is an option for you.
For Designated Occupations
Alberta certifies and offers training in nine designated occupations. Each requirement for certification and training varies depending on industry standards. Occupation applicants need to read the Occupational Certificate Guide related to the occupation they are interested in before applying. Note: Industrial Construction Crew Supervisors applying for certification based on work experience must submit an ICCS Employer Assessment of Competency Form.
For Trade and Occupation Committees
You can stay active in Alberta’s apprenticeship system by joining a committee in your trade or occupation following certification.
