25.7. On application, the Minister issues an occupational qualification certificate to any person who meets one of the following conditions regarding a trade described in an occupational standard:
(1) the person has met the skills recognition requirements determined for a workplace skills development strategy established under the framework;
(2) the person exercises or has exercised the trade and an organization or sectoral workforce committee recognized by the Commission for the trade confirms that the person has met the skills recognition requirements that a person must meet in order to demonstrate mastery of all the skills described in the occupational standard; or
(3) the person holds an occupational qualification certificate issued outside Québec under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program developed by the Canadian Council of Directors of Apprenticeship or recognized under an intergovernmental agreement to which the Government is party in respect of workforce mobility or the recognition of qualifications, skills or work experience.
On application, the Minister issues a competency certificate to a person who, in one of the situations described in subparagraph 1 or 2 of the first paragraph, demonstrates mastery of one or more of the skills described in an occupational standard.
If an organization or sectoral workforce committee recognized as specified in subparagraph 2 of the first paragraph charges fees to persons who wish to be recognized for mastery of all or some of the skills described in an occupational standard, the fees must comply with the limits agreed with the Commission, which must be brought to the attention of the Minister. Not later than 1 April 2011 and every three years after that date, the Commission must report to the Minister on the carrying out of this paragraph as regards the fees charged.
The Commission may, by regulation, set the fees payable for the issue of an occupational qualification certificate or a competency certificate under this section. Such a regulation must be submitted to the Government for approval.
