As a tradesperson, there are five steps to apply to have your skills assessed in order to be allowed to challenge the Journeyperson exam.

Step 1

Apply for Assessment by completing the application FORM 7 and provide evidence of your trade experience with the appropriate Form 6A for your trade. Pay the fees as noted. 

Step 2

Evidence Requirements: Supply credentials and transcripts, employer letters, and self-employment information (e.g. Business License).

Step 3

Verification process: The SATCC Assessment Unit completes the assessment process. Verification of hours, dates and tasks performed will be completed for each employer Form 6A submitted. 

  • Applicants in the compulsory trades must provide credentials and transcripts along with the Form 6A and employer letters. There are five compulsory trades in Saskatchewan:  Construction Electrician, Plumber, Sheet Metal Worker, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Mechanic, and Sprinkler Fitter.

Step 4

Results Letter: The SATCC Assessment Unit sends the applicant a letter with the results.

  • The results will indicate one of three outcomes – approved to challenge the exam, not approved to challenge the exam, or more information needed.
  • NOTE: The Results Letter IS NOT a Certificate of Qualification. It is only the results of the assessment.

Step 5

Apply for Examination: Once approved, apply to challenge the Journeyperson exam.
