  1. Hi I’m Richard Lange From Saskatoon.
    I was wandering If there was a way to receive a RV training certification with out going through schooling? Is there a on line test for this? Is there a Grandfather clause were I can be certified? Just like SGI provides in the auto body industry if a person is the owner of his business. I’ve been doing SGI claims, I’ve been repairing RV’s for Over two years now and have my own Mobile RV business running.
    Is the training a ( red seal certification )?
    My cell number is 306- 371 – 5925

  4. I’m one of the Red Seal Techs in Saskatchewan. It is great to see the industry advancing. Schooling is through Okanagan Collage. Wages currently 30 dollars an hour average inin Sask province. Though many pay far to little and don’t support technitions . Propane Tickets for journyman will be required soon by all shops in Saskatchewan.

  5. I’m currently working in the RV industry and am interested in pursuing my red seal for he RV trade. When and where will Saskatchewan be starting the apprenticeship training? I hope it will be in Saskatoon and in the winter months.
