English Assessment: Not assessed by the Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB)*.
Recommendation: There are no formal language assessment requirements for welders in Manitoba. However, welders should be able to communicate clearly in English in order to do their job well. It is very important that you have good oral communication skills so you can communicate with your employers and co-workers. Welders must also be able to read and follow blueprints.
*Note: The CLB is used across Canada as the basis for language assessment and teaching. In Manitoba all the government-funded Adult English as an Additional Language (EAL) programs use the CLB. Some post-secondary educational institutions such as Red River College also recognize CLB test results for program admission.
