    I just loved this course and I feel so happy knowing that this investment will certainly increase my professional competence. It is reassuring to always find actual Canadian immigration content when shopping from RCICCPD!
    With this course I have found tons of very useful information all related to Students in immigration legislation and manuals as well as best practices for several specific topics around this subject that are invaluable for new RCICs like me.
