There are five compulsory trades in Saskatchewan. They are:
- Construction Electrician
- Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Mechanic
- Sheet Metal Worker
- Sprinkler Fitter
Aside from these, voluntary trades, or non-compulsory trades, make up the vast majority of the designated trades in Saskatchewan. Workers are encouraged to take apprenticeship training in the voluntary trades, or to attain their journeyperson certification, but it is not a mandatory requirement to work in the trade.

- You have not been approved to challenge the Journeyperson exam and must apply as an apprentice once you are a resident of Saskatchewan, OR
- You need to provide more information before an assessment can be completed
