Exam and Study


Get the most out of the time leading up to your exam. Studying and preparing are important, and there are lots of resources to help you. 

Refresher courses are just one of the various resources to support exam preparation. They are meant to supplement technical training, on-the-job training, and independent study. SkilledTradesBC does not guarantee results on exams following a refresher course. Furthermore, while SkilledTradesBC provides guidance on standards included in some of these refresher courses, training providers are solely responsible for the development of course content, therefore, SkilledTradesBC does not assume responsibility for the quality or accuracy of Refresher Courses.
