Default confuse about the diploma/training

Hello everyone i'd like to emigrate to canada as a skilled worker-glazier.My job is on the NOC my case is the following:my work experience is 4 years and i hold an NVQ level 2 and NVQ level 3 in my trade but the nvqs are obtained on the site by written assessment and practical assessment .All this assessment was done in a couple of days only.There is no school training for glaziers so the only way you get an nvq is on the site assessment.Now my question is is my nvq level 3 enough to get some points?I also have a 3 years diploma in no pre-school teaching but not recent working experience may i put this diploma down for points or is has to be diploma related to glazier only?

For points you just use your highest education credential, it doesn't have to be related to the NOC you are applying under, so you can use your other 3 year diploma. It must have been a full-time course to count, or you can use the part-time equivalent (i.e. if it took you 3 years but only 2 days a week, that would equate to a one year diploma for points purposes).

Having said all that, you are aware that glaziers aren't on the list of occupations in demand, so you'll need a job offer approved by HRSDC to qualify as a Skilled Worker?

Good luck.

OK, so you wouldn't be going as a Skilled Worker anyway? As no employer is going to wait the 2 years or so it'll take for you to get PR as a Skilled Worker before you can start work.

So forget the points as they won't be relevant to you now anyway, you just need to concentrate on getting the job offer and then getting the Labour Market Opinion.

Good luck.
