All of our staff members have taken the ICCRC Full Skills (Entry to Practice) Exam themselves, which is a large part of the reason why we are so effective in helping people pass on their first attempt!

When we finished our Immigration Consultant Certificate in August 2012, we were dismayed to find that, while the classes offered were good to prepare us for a life of consulting, we needed to focus on passing the exam first.

In the two months between the end of our studies and the ICCRC exam itself, we spent a great deal of time on the internet researching preparation courses which could specifically teach us how to pass the ICCRC Full Skills Exam. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything useful as the only other programs were basically summaries of various immigration streams and we didn’t feel safe trusting our future as RCICs to people who hadn’t taken the exam and didn’t have any formal teaching credentials or experience in exam preparation.

With Kyle’s academic background in education and testing, along with his 12 years of teaching experience, we formulated a system to help students who have finished their certificate, but still need to write the exam.

Using this system, we have helped hundreds of people pass on their first try and our #1 goal in this course is to help you do the same!
