Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course

All 14 and 15 year-old workers in Saskatchewan will 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 page at the Ministry of Labour Relations and Workplace Safety website to download and read the three modules of the YWRCC Workbook and Self-study guide.

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 14 or 15 year olds, you must have and keep on file:

  • Proof of your youth worker’s age.
  • Written consent allowing the youth to work from their parent or guardian.
  • A copy of their Young Worker Readiness Certificate of Completion.
