Bilingual immigration practitioner program first of its kind

TORONTO, Dec. 2 /CNW/ - The Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC) recently opened its virtual doors to Canada's first ever fully bilingual online immigration practitioner program.

"This program is offered in French and English and is a real opportunity for anyone looking for a new and exciting career in a fast-growing profession," said John Ryan, CSIC Chair and Acting CEO. "For the first time, irrespective of geographic location or language, you can graduate from an accredited course and join a proud profession as a member of CSIC - in other words, a student will become a Certified Canadian Immigration Consultant."

CSIC's Immigration Consultant Certificate Program takes a modern, thoughtful and practical approach to the study of immigration law. The program can be completed in 38 weeks, making it especially appealing to prospective entrepreneurs or someone looking for a new and exciting career but who may be juggling a busy family or work schedule.

""With approximately 265,000 people every year hoping to make Canada their home there's no better time to become a Certified Canadian Immigration Consultant," concluded Ryan.

The program combines current immigration knowledge and research with cutting-edge, interactive media and social technology. Students will emerge from the program with essential immigration knowledge, legal research skills, a professional network and a comprehensive, professional business plan to support them as they apply for CSIC membership and launch their own businesses.

CSIC is a national regulatory body and, as such, falls under Federal jurisdiction. This online program will be offered by CSIC's e-Academy in the province of New Brunswick. Established in 2004, CSIC's mandate is to protect consumers of immigration consulting services. Consequently, it is responsible for ensuring the education, competency testing and the discipline of its members. CSIC also requires its members to carry errors and omissions insurance and to contribute to a compensation fund.
