Now equipped with skills from CCW Level 1, as well as practical work experience, apprentices in
the Construction Craft Worker Level 2 training program will revisit many of the topics covered in
Level 1 in greater detail, as well as explore new concepts and receive equipment training to help

week for a comprehensive review, preparing apprentices to successfully challenge and pass the
Red Seal exam and receive their Certificate of Qualification.
