Young Worker Readiness Certificate course


All 14- and 15-year-old workers in Saskatchewan need a Young Worker Readiness Certificate of Completion (YWRCC) to be able to work.

Are you a young worker?

Go to the Young Worker Readiness Certificate course on the Government of Saskatchewan’s website to download and read the three modules of the YWRCC guide and workbook.

Once you’ve reviewed the material, you can take the YWRCC test online. Once you pass the course, print your certificate of completion. You must provide a copy of your certificate to your employer and keep the original in your own files. If you lose your certificate, you must retake the test.

Are you an employer?

If you are an employer and hire a 14- or 15-year-old, you must have and keep on file:

  • Proof of the youth worker’s age.
  • Written consent allowing the youth to work from their parent or guardian.
  • A copy of the youth’s YWRCC.
