How does it work?

The Corporate Readiness Training Program is a 16 week program that consists of:

  • 10 weeks of full-time, in-class, employment-related training for internationally trained professionals who have a Canadian language benchmark of 6+
  • 6 weeks of professional work experience that can lead to a Canadian reference
  • An additional 6 months of follow-up support, including continued job search assistance.

Graduates of CRTP have the opportunity to be referred to our Mentorship program to continue to build their professional networks.

Gaining Canadian Work Experience

One key component of the CRTP program is the opportunity to gain relevant Canadian work experience that can be used on the resume to further your job search. CRTP works to place all learners in a 6 week work placement so expose internationally trained professionals to the Canadian workplace to expose them to the expectations and responsibilities of this work culture.

 

Develop your competitive advantage!

The Corporate Readiness Training program will help you develop a competitive tool kit of skills that will help you enter and advance in the Calgary workplace. You will complete the program with an effective, targeted resume, cover letter and interview skills.
