English Language Requirements for Immigration Consultant Certificate

Since September 2010 all new registrants in the Immigration Consultant certificate (ICC) program will be required to take Humber‘s English Placement Test (EPT), arranged through The Business School. The results of the EPT will determine if applicants will be placed in an ESL/COMM 300, ESL/COMM 200 or an ESL/COMM 100 level course. Students are required to pass ESL/COMM 300 to graduate from the Immigration Consultant certificate program.

How the Language Requirement Works:

Students must ensure the results of the EPT are provided to the Continuing Education Department of the Business School (see contact information below). If the test results place a student at an ESL 150/COMM 100 level, the student will not be granted admission to the Immigration Consultant certificate program. A student must first pass the ESL 150/COMM 100 course to be granted admission to the program.

Students placed in ESL/COMM 200 will have to complete ESL/COMM 200 and ESL/COMM 300. Students placed in
ESL/COMM 300 will only have to complete ESL/COMM 300. Exemptions to ESL/COMM 300 will be granted only to students that have completed an equivalent course in a recognized Canadian postsecondary institution.

Please be advised that ESL/COMM 200 is a prerequisite for the following courses: BICC 402 Business Planning for Immigration, and BICC 404 Immigration and Refugee Law Procedures. Students, therefore, cannot take BICC 402 or BICC 404 until ESL/COMM 200 has been successfully completed.

To arrange for your English Placement Test (EPT) for the Immigration Consultant certificate, please get a student number by calling the Registrar's Office at 416.675.5005. Then send your student number and your choice of test dates to cebusiness@humber.ca.
