Richard's course was a great help to me in passing the interprovincial carpentry exam. I took the three weekend course, before starting I thought, this sucks I'm going to be wasting 3 weekends. But I was wrong the classes were very engaging and frankly entertaining. Richard's method of teaching you how to use the code book, not to memorize it, worked...

Heard about this course from my friend Tim who took it. Figured why not . I honestly believe I wouldn’t have passed without Richard’s course.

I recently took Richard’s Red Seal Prep course online and I’m very thankful I did. I had the site experience but knew that I would fall short if I walked into the Exam blind.

At 33 years old, I felt the passion to be more than a skilled labourer. I believed in the ‘TRADES’ and their potential for higher Income levels.

Red Seal Co-workers were earning approx. $12/hr more money, my...

After moving from New Zealand to Vancouver 3 years ago, I fell short on points when I applied for my Permanent Residency.
