Default Mr Miller or any immigration expert

Hi there,

My husband and I are in the early stages of assessing points as skilled
workers to emigrate from the United Kingdom to Canada.
I will be the main applicant as I gain more points than my husband as I've
practiced my career in running my own hairdressing salon for a longer period
of time than he has been a Police Officer.
I have been in touch with an "Immigration Lawyer" in Toronto and discussed
our application.

My husband only has Secondary Education Exams so we were finding it
difficult to gain the extra 3 points on the "Adaptability Criteria" to make
our points up to 75.

My husband has completed his full 2 years training as a Police Officer. I
have been advised by a Canadian Lawyer that if my husband has completed 14
years of Secondary School we could use his Police Training as a type of
"Apprenticeship" in order to gain those extra points in the Adaptability
Criteria.

We are considering using this firm to assist us, I just wanted to know if
this information is accurate in your opinion?
I'm aware that some Lawyers can "promise" successful applications", this
firm offers a "money back guarantee" and certainly seem a reputable firm,
and were very helpful.
I would be very grateful of any information you have on this matter before
we commit and send payment.

Thankyou,

Alison

Alison,

The information is not completely accurate. 3 points for spouse's education in
the adaptability factor are granted if such education credentials would earn 12
or 15 points if assessed as principal applicant. If spouse's credentials are
worth 20 points then such will bring 4 points in the adaptability factor.

Here is what Regulations state about credentials worth 12, 15 or 20 points:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
78(2)

(b) 12 points for a one-year post-secondary educational credential, other than
a university educational credential, and a total of at least 12 years of
completed full-time or fulltime equivalent studies;

(c) 15 points for

(i) a one-year post-secondary educational credential, other than a
university educational credential, and a total of at least 13 years of
completed full-time or full-time equivalent studies, or

(ii) a one-year university educational credential at the bachelor's level
and a total of at least 13 years of completed full-time or full-time
equivalent
studies;

(d) 20 points for

(e) a two-year post-secondary educational credential, other than a university
educational credential, and a total of at least 14 years of completed full-time
or full-time equivalent studies, or

(f) a two-year university educational credential at the bachelor's level and a
total of at least 14 years of completed full-time or full-time equivalent
studies;
--------------------------------------------------------------------


As you can see above 12 years of education with 1 year post secondary
credential is enough to bring 3 points in the adaptability factor. On the other
hand a 2 year post secondary credential with at least 14 years of education
would bring 4 points in this factor.

The main issue here will be acceptance of police officer training as
"educational credential". Regulations describe educational credential as
follows:

--------------------------------------------------------------------
"educational credential" means any diploma, degree or trade or apprenticeship
credential issued on the completion of a program of study or training at an
educational or training institution recognized by the authorities responsible
for registering, accrediting, supervising and regulating such institutions in
the country of issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------

So, the critical question is - did your husband's training result in issuing a
diploma, training or apprenticeship credential upon completion and was such
training conducted at an educational or training institution recognized by
authorities responsible for registering, accrediting, supervising and
regulating such institutions?

If not then it may not be possible to get those points, regardless how much
"things" will be stretched.

But if your lawyer is a reputable one, without any complaints on the record
anywhere, knows what he is doing and his money back guarantee doesn't have any
fine print providing for fair compensation for his work regardless of the
outcome then you are not taking a huge financial risk, except processing fees.

If you are thinking about obtaining a second opinion then you may contact me
directly for free evaluation.

Hi Mr Miller,

Thankyou very much for taking the time to reply.
The immigration firm I'm thinking of using is "Abrams & Krochak". They
didn't actually advise me that the Police Training would give me 3 points,
that was the amount of points I needed to bring our score up to 75, I
guessed it would have given me a minimum of 3, sorry I didn't make myself
very clear on that.
Concerning my husbands Police Training, he attained a "confirmation of his
probationary period", although no certificate was issued, this can be
verified if necessary. His training was at the National Police Training
institution so I think this should fit the criteria.
I've read the terms of the money back guarantee and they seem fairly
straight forward, but I haven't had the smallprint yet, I will do some
checks on this.
I would be happy for you to give me a second opinion, thankyou.
Would you mind telling me if you know anything about Abrams & Krochak, I've
looked to see if they have ever appeared in court, and nothing has come up.
I have had a telephone conversation with them and I did get the impression
they were professional.
Would you agree that the Police Training comes under the "apprenticeship
criteria"? My husband has also completed 14 years of secondary education.

TIA for your help.

Alison

Alison,

It seems that your husband's training may be deemed as acceptable
apprenticeship as it was done in training institution. The question remains -
was it a post-secondary credential? Was a 12th grade (or graduation from high
school) required to enter the program? And still the lack of formal diploma may
pose a problem.

As for Abrams & Krochak - I don't know them, although it seems that they
somehow solicit business by sending direct emails to every poster in this and
other immigration forums without contributing any advice while those of us who
contribute regularly here never use unsolicited email to get a client. So, I
can't even tell you how good they are as I never had privilege to see any
evidence of their expertise.

There are thousands of lawyers and consultants in this business and all of them
sound knowledgeable and professional when they want - but it doesn't prove
anything. Bad practitioners sometimes get lucky (I should say their clients may
get lucky) while even a good one may sometimes make a mistake, so it is hard to
judge someone I have no information about.

Hi Mr Miller,

My husband didn't need a "graduation from high school" to enter the Police
Force, even though he stayed at secondary school for 14 years, he only came
out with part of an "A" level, "O"levels and CSE's, which are secondary
school exams.
In Britain the Home Office are working on a framework since 1999 to
recognise that British Trained Police should receive a "qualification" for
their training, but unfortunately that hasn't been done yet, even though Nik
did the "new style" of training, this maybe recognised next year. Are you
saying that if he didn't need to graduate from high school to join the
police then it doesn't count as a post-secondary credential?
How do I find out if immigration will accept this for those extra points?
The impression I got from "Abrams & Krochak" was as long as he did 14 years
full time study, the police training would count as an "apprenticeship".
I'm confused and worried that my hopes have been built up, and this part of
our application is crucial to whether we have enough points.
I thought that an apprenticeship was different to a post-secondary
credential, I thought you could have either.
If the Police confirmed he passed the exams in his training and successfully
completed the course, would that count for anything?
I respect what your saying about lawyers that flood the net, that's why I
wanted to get a second opinion before I commit, and I'm so glad I have.
I don't know where I go from here, is there anymore helpful advise you can
give me?
I will e-mail you tomorrow so I can send you all the details for an
assessment, if not I will try and call on Monday.

Many thanks for your replies, I'm sure your a very busy man and it's much
appreciated.

Alison,

I believe that there will be a way to use your husband's training as

after such.
