As a Gold Seal Certified professional, you know that the Gold Seal Certification program is valued as an important symbol of professional excellence in the construction industry.
This email is to advise you of the recent changes in the Gold Seal Certification program.
The previous application and exam portal was not robust enough, leading to poor experience. As a result, the Gold Seal team is migrating to a new application process.
The previous portal was closed on April 30. As of May 1, we opened a temporary online application system to new applicants.
What does this mean for you?
As a current GSC, you are role model and mentor for your co-workers and peers, who may be interested in pursuing their GSC. We want to ensure that you are kept up to date with the Gold Seal program, the process and any changes, so that you may provide accurate information to your colleagues.
If you know anyone who is interested in pursuing their Gold Seal Certification or Gold Seal internship, please direct them to the following resources:
New application forms and important resources
While the requirements didn’t change, we separated the GSI and GSC applications, simplified the GSI application form to only include experience and letter of recommendation as well as added mandatory fields to the GSC application form. One notable difference is that the new forms are for one-time use meaning that the applicants will not be able to save their application and return to it later. They should therefore have an understanding of the requirements, how many credits they have and all project information for the past 5 – 8 years and formal education and training certificates ready when they start their application.
Those GSI and GSC applicants who started their application in the old portal but never submitted or paid of it, need to start a new GSI or GSC application. Those GSI applicants who were approved in the previous portal were advised to create new GSC applications once they meet the GSC experience and training requirements. Those “in-progress” GSC applicants that who started their application in the previous portal, can use this tool to submit their application for final review once they meet the requirements. Any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also an exam booking tool for any approved or conditionally approved applicants as well as a rewrite booking tool for those candidates who didn’t pass on their first try.
