Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course

Welcome to the Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course (YWRCC)

Are you thinking about getting a job or already working?

Your first job is an exciting experience. It can mean more independence, responsibility and money. However, you need more than a job to be "ready for work."

Do you know that because you are an inexperienced young worker, you are more likely to get hurt on the job and have problems being paid properly than more experienced workers?

Completing this Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course will help you learn about your rights and responsibilities for health and safety and labour standards — before you start work. Knowing how to look out for yourself can help you to have safe and fair work experiences.

Remember, if you are 14 or 15 years of age and want to work in Saskatchewan, you will need to provide your employer with proof (a Certificate of Completion) that you have successfully completed this Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course before you start work.

Important: You must have access to a printer to use this online version of the course.
