It took long for Alok to be registered as Engineer in Canada. One of the challenges is the work experience required to register in his profession. he was smart. He used the opportunity to work in a related profession, attended conferences and took courses in Canada. The process must be really long and expensive, but he was able to succeed. He is an inspiration.
I would be interested to do the same. My present location will not make it possible for me to take long years of study to achieve my goals. I will need to take online courses or short courses at a time.
As a newcomer, I would like to attend in trainings and workshops here before I get integrated with the regulated profession. I t will help me to have a related learning experience and a year or two of studies to bridge the gap and prepare me for the licensing exam here.
