Are you new to Canada? Wondering where to start? Building a new life in a different country can seem overwhelming at times. Academy of Learning is here to help! We have educated thousands of new immigrants entering Alberta and we are here to make the steps to attaining gainful employment as easy as possible.
When coming with credentials from various countries, finding out what they are equivalent to here can be completed by looking up International Qualifications Assessment Services offered by the Government of Alberta. You can find them at this link: https://www.alberta.ca/iqas.aspx. It is a simple process where you will mail them your original documents and they would send them back to you with a formal letter that explains what your education is equivalent to in Alberta. Make sure to take copies of your originals so that you are not left without a copy while they are completing the assessment. When you receive the assessment, you will know whether you need to find an institution where you can take a short term program in order to find work.
This is where the Academy of Learning can help you. Many new immigrants do not want to go back to university to do another four years of education when they have already have a degree. However, usually they will need some sort of Canadian credential to be employable. At the Academy of Learning, all the programs offered are less than a year and if you are permanent resident, you qualify for funding.
These short term vocational courses will update your skill set and give your resume the content employers are looking for. With various courses in fields such as IT, Healthcare, Legal, Business and much more, we offer the short term training you need to get the job! For those of you without previous post-secondary education, we can help you too. If you do not have a previous high school diploma but need to get working, we have exams that you can write to demonstrate equivalency.
