New Red Seal Endorsements for Heavy Equipment Operator Trades

The first ever Interprovincial Red Seal exams for the heavy equipment operator trades are anticipated to be available in Ontario in spring/summer 2016. Once released, individuals will be able to achieve a Red Seal Endorsement (RSE) on their Certificate of Qualification (C of Q) in the following three trades:

  • Heavy equipment operator – dozer (636C)
  • Heavy equipment operator – excavator (636B)
  • Heavy equipment operator – tractor loader backhoe (636A)

The availability of the three heavy equipment operator Interprovincial Red Seal exams and their associated RSE is new across Canada. For more information on these programs, please see the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT) website.
