Assessment of credentials




Hello friends,

Is it advisable to get the credentials assessed by "World Education Services - Canada" or "International Credentials Evaluation Service"? If so, is it better to have it done before arriving in Canada ...... or after landing?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Regards

If you go to Career Bridge or ACCES (http://www.careerbridge.ca/), they suggest WES.

WES is recognized, and funded in part, by the Government of Ontario.

If you want to do a course, better ask the university as to what is their preferred credential evaluation service.

It's wastage of time and money.I had my credentials evaluated from "W.E.S",i went for the document/document evaluation.They charged me $100 for it.Basically,wat i needed was to get a G.P.A equivalent to my percentage.And u know,the only thing they gave me back in their result was :
canadian equivalency:
"Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science and Enginnering".
So u see, just for this one line,i had to spend $100.And when i asked them how cud i get my G.P.A equivalent,they told me i had to go for the course/course evaluation,and i needed to submit my application again from the start,tht means this time i have to send thm $200.Unfortunately,i didnt had that much money,and so i didnt went for it.
But even after getting this equivalency,it's 3 months i am in canada,and im still findin a job.I am not even gettin a data-entry or a computer operator's job.Who wud better know to operate a computer thn me?Do u need canadian experience,for operating a computer??Might be..who knows.

Thank you friends for your valuable feedback.

Can anyone advise whether it is worthwhile for Indian/Pakistani Chartered Accoutants to have their credientials evaluated? Or is it advisable to do any other groundwork before arriving? According to Chartered Accountants of Canada website, qualifications of India/Pakistan are under "re-review", however, it is not clear whether automatic recognition will be given.

I submitted my application in Jan04 and am still awaiting outcome.

Thanks in advance!


Regards
Zain
