Once a part of Ashton, always a part of Ashton. Our alumni are the result of professional learning, credible instruction and personal drive. They are rewriting the rules in their field, and making their mark on society. Our graduates’ success has been wide ranging and far reaching: from securing employment with Brazil’s largest telecommunications firm, to establishing an immigration consulting firm with multiple offices around the world.
“I didn’t initially plan on working in the financial services industry, but after I graduated I secured a position with Freedom 55 as an advisor and right away I was hooked. The biggest draw was the program format; it was a condensed course, which was great for me because I didn’t really have the time to sit through a long, drawn-out course – no one in my business does.”

“Right away I knew that I wanted to work in immigration. 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.”
After I realized I would need a formal education in order to secure a bookkeeping position, I enrolled in Ashton’s Bookkeeping Certificate program. I liked that the program was shorter than others I looked into. I didn’t want to spend too much time out of the workforce. At the same time, I saw that the program would cover all the topics I needed to be familiar with, and the small class sizes assured me I would receive support and individual attention from the instructors.
