Red Seal qualification

Journeymen (JCC) who will hold a Red Seal qualification in erection of steel components (generalist or structural/ornamental) by july 17, 2018 will have their competency certificate converted into an ironworker JCC. This new JCC will be sent by mail at the time of renewal; workers will not have to make a request.

30,000 hours registered with the CCQ

Journeymen ornamental iron workers or structural steel erectors with 30,000 or more hours registered with the CCQ by july 17, 2018 will have their competency certificate converted into an ironworker JCC. When it is renewed, the new JCC will be sent by mail at no charge and without the worker having to make a request.

Fewer than 30,000 hours registered with the CCQ

Journeymen who have registered fewer than 30,000 hours worked with the CCQ may immediately take the provincial qualification examination for the trade of ironworker. Once they have passed this exam, they will obtain a JCC for the trade of ironworker. If they decide not to take the new exam, journeymen have until July 17, 2018, to take complementary training. Once they have completed this training their JCC will be converted into an ironworker JCC.

Journeymen who do not take complementary training by July 17, 2018 or pass the ironworker exam will have their JCC converted into an ironworker apprentice competency certificate (ACC). These workers will be considered to be in the third apprenticeship period.

The CCQ will send information, by mail, on the complementary training to all journeymen whose certificate is not converted automatically on the date that the regulatory change comes into effect.

Fewer than 30,000 hours registered with the CCQ, with DEP

Journeymen who have registered fewer than 30,000 hours worked with the CCQ and will obtain a DEP diploma in Montage structural et architectural (5299) by July 17, 2018  will have their certificate converted into an ironworker JCC. When it is renewed, the new JCC will be sent by mail at no charge and without the need to make a request.
