I would recommend this to anyone who is starting something new or considering a change.”

My advice to current students is just to keep focused – there’s no need to rush through your learning experience.”
Alberta - Personal Trainer
“I was an education assistant and lost my position due to cutbacks the month before I graduated from ICS Canada. I was extremely lucky that I had something to fall back on. Now I have my own business, I make my own hours, and I make a comfortable living as a personal trainer. I have met so many wonderful people in my profession and have helped many of them live a healthier lifestyle. It makes me so happy to see people reach goals that they once thought were impossible.
I chose ICS Canada’s Personal Trainer program because I love to work out and wanted to learn more about exercise and nutrition. It helped prepare me for the NCSF certification by giving me the necessary tools I needed to pass my exam. The material was clearly written and easy to understand, the every book was delivered quickly so there was no waiting for the next shipment to arrive.”
Quebec - High School, Automotive Mechanics
“I chose ICS Canada because I wanted to make sure I had opportunities in life. With ICS Canada, I was able to earn my High School diploma and complete the Automotive Mechanic course while working two jobs and only four hours of free time a day. You need to have strong willpower to finish what you started, and there were days I didn’t want to study, but I was able to push myself to complete my courses.”
Alberta - Accounting

The study materials were first-class and the courses were relevant to today’s business environment.”
Ontario - Photography
“ICS Canada’s Photography program taught me the skills I needed to become a much better photographer. The information they provided left me well-informed to complete the exams and projects put before me, and each grade I received was clearly explained to me. I am now currently taking the Freelance Writing course, and use my experience with both programs to become a photojournalist. I am now a photographer for the National Drag Racing Association in Ontario and have started my own photography business.”
“I recently changed careers from being a golf professional to an engineering support tech at an offshore drilling service company. Even though the customer service and computer skills I had previous to my training with ICS Canada were great, I still had a long way to go to get to where I wanted to be in my career. The AutoCAD essentials course helped me do just that. I learned AutoCAD on my own time, at home and at work, and with the most user-friendly programs I have ever used. Thank you, ICS!”
