Ashton’s Immigration Consultant Diploma is one of the most in demand across Canada. Our longstanding accreditation by ICCRC and the success stories from our alumni demonstrates the quality of our curriculum and faculty. When it comes to training Regulated Immigration Consultants, we are the experts.

The Immigration Consultant Diploma (IMCD) Program provides individuals with the academic knowledge to seek out career opportunities as practicing Immigration Consultants, as regulated by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). In Canada, you must meet the requirements set out by the council and become a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) before you can legally provide immigration consulting services.

Ashton IMCD alumnus Vitoria Correia started and runs her own Immigration Consulting firm.

Accredited by the ICCRC, this program allows our graduates to meet the essential requirements of becoming a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant. The Immigration Consultant Diploma (IMCD) Program is designed to equip individuals with knowledge about immigration law and policy as well as the analytic skills to apply these principles within practical settings. The knowledge acquired will prepare the graduate for taking the ICCRC Full Skills Exam.

“Because of the requirements involved in becoming a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC), I knew that I would need to complete an academic program in order to advance my career. I chose Ashton after learning about the high exam pass rate of their students. I felt like this program would teach me what I needed to know, and prepare me for the Full Skills exam.”
