If you are a tradesperson looking to expand your career opportunities, the Achievement in Business Competencies (Blue Seal) Program will be of interest to you. The Blue Seal certificate shows that a tradesperson meets Alberta’s high industry standards and has the qualities and knowledge to succeed not only in trades work, but in business as well. It is available to those who have an Alberta Journeyman Certificate, Alberta Occupational Certificate or other recognized trade certificate and who complete either a program of study approved by the Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board or finish 150 hours of study in an approved subject at an approved training provider.

If you are interested in becoming Blue Seal certified and seeking support to transform your organizational and leadership skills into an exciting career, Academy of Learning Career College (AOLCC) will give you the momentum you need. That’s because we are now one of the recognized training providers for the Blue Seal Program in Alberta. Here are some advantages of pursuing your Blue Seal certification at AOLCC.

Blue Seal approved business administration training will give you the opportunity to develop and refine your business skills in a wide variety of areas. These business skills can complement your existing trade skills, thus ensuring you have as many tools as possible for success.

The course work will provide a solid understanding of business practices and principles that you will be able to apply to changing economic and social conditions in the workplace.

There is also the chance to connect with other like-minded students who are on the same journey to careers in finance, production, human resources, leadership roles in skilled trades and many other disciplines.

Gain More Choices for Career Advancement

People who have business management training are prepared to meet the requirements set by today’s competitive job market. After making this kind of investment in your career you will have the business knowledge to be a competent and confident supervisor or manager, which will help if you are leading a team or plan on becoming an entrepreneur.

A Blue Seal program can be a step to advancing in your career

When you have business administration or management training, you can also branch out into careers outside of the trades.
