The Red Seal Refresher Manual will help you prepare for writing the Landscape Horticulture Red Seal Exam. Use it as a guide to help you prioritize your studying.
This manual will not help you pass the exam if you do not already have the knowledge and skills required. The scope of the exam is too broad to be able to learn everything in a compressed study session. If you require more intensive study, you may want to consider using the Level 1-4 manuals used by apprentices in their technical training.
Nothing in this manual is based on anything specific from the exam. The content of this manual and sample questions has been written independently from the Red Seal Exam. This guide provides refresher material and examples of the style of questions to expect.
Though this manual has been written for British Columbia Candidates, The Inter-Provincial Red Seal Horticulturist Exam is the same in all Provinces and Territories. The core tasks covered in this manual are the same in all Provinces and Territories. The content of this manual is provincial specific to one section on what to expect at the testing location and required identification. These procedures for sitting the exam in British Columbia may vary regionally; as such, you should defer to your Province or Territory’s training authority for procedure on sitting the exam.
