    Another fantastic course. I like the way that the lesson gives us real insight into practical tools we can implement right away for our clients.

    5 out of 5

    Second course taken from RCICCPD and all the information obtained in the last one (Studying in Canada) just proves even more useful when learning the practical side of the subject.
    This time I have learned everything there is to know regarding the path from study permits to PR, provincial and territorial immigration programs and Quebec immigration legislations, in a very fluid and practical approach to the themes. But it doesn’t end there, I have also learned about topics like how to effectively conduct client interviews, how to manage ethical issues, duties regarding confidentiality, and conflict management!
    Yours are certainly courses worth every minute and, of course, every penny invested.
