The administrator of the Red Seal Program, the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship (CCDA), is pleased to announce the official recognition of the “RSE” acronym (Red Seal Endorsement) for qualified skilled journeypersons! Members of prestigious professions and accredited groups are often identified by the use of an official acronym that confirms their certification and/or accreditation.
The CCDA believes that an officially recognized acronym for professionals in the trade industry provides qualified individuals with a way to easily reflect their qualifications while creating prestige for their credentials, in this case, the Red Seal endorsement. The RSE acronym is to be used by journeypersons who have obtained a Red Seal endorsement on their provincial or territorial Certificates of Qualification and Apprenticeship by successfully completing a Red Seal examination. Anyone holding a Red Seal endorsement can begin using RSE on their business cards and promotional materials today.
The implementation of the RSE acronym meets the CCDA’s long-term vision for the Red Seal Program by continuing to raise the image of the skilled trades, to recognize the professionalism of the skilled trades and to recognize the standard of excellence offered by the Red Seal Program.
Look for the Canadian standard of excellence for skilled trades; look for the RSE.
