Default Work permit question

Hi,
Does anyone know if it is possible to go to Canada to visit and whilst there gain a qualification.
I ask this because i am a driving instructor but my qualifications don't count over there.
Could i do the training course then come back and apply for a work permit?
Thanks

Sorry, cant do education on a visitors visa...or even on a work permit for that matter. You might be able to get a study permit though and come over, but I dont know how that would work for a driving instructor course...usually its for more academic rather than vocational training?

I don't know about driving instructing but you can get a study permit for vocational training, my partner has one for chef's school.
