The course is informative but was recorded in 2015 and this could mean that some of the info is outdated. I would suggest to update it for 2020 (with latest info and website links and screenshots).

If you were looking online and you did not had any clear answer about what to do and what to apply, this helps you A LOT to understand what you need and what you might need to apply for. Recommended!

I find a very good explanation so far, I have read a lot before about express entry, but this course has open up my eyes to some hidden details, I highly recommend this course for individuals who want to start an immigration process, to allow them to understand before going through their journey of immigration.

The first steps are really easy to follow. Maybe the only issue is that the webpage from the link and the video don't look the same and might confuse you for a few seconds there.

Ernesto29 August 2017

they have taken us step by step in the process with examples so we can know how to apply to the program

Andre24 November 2016

Very good, clear and complete about the process. I recommend. It's from 2011, but it keeps almost all changes, that it's easy to get in the CIC website..

Zeldi1 September 2016

The course is well laid out step by step. It is much easier to follow than the government's website which takes you from place to place. It also explains how everything works so I actually know how to apply.

Mohammad21 August 2016

general course you need to explain more like how to prepare your education credentials for assessment, how to improve your points ...etc

Suvadeep1 April 2015
