Never A Better Time For Employment Skills Training @ CIES

The Employment Skills Training program (EST) launched in 2009 has now about to complete its 7th year of helping financially challenged newcomers in Calgary find suitable employment.With an average 75% success rate the program has been very successful. Over 500 students have now completed the program, with EST students improving their workplace knowledge, their marketable skills, increasing their self-esteem and confidence levels, and securing suitable employment.

The best part is that the EST program is a free, full-time program for permanent residents and refugees that have been in Calgary for less than 5 years.

This 310 hour (3 Month) program includes computer training in Microsoft Office, hardware and
software training, business communications training including Canadian Business Culture, and
job finding strategies as well as targeted cover letters, resumes and interview skills.Numerous guest speakers from different economic sectors present to the EST students about Canadian Business Culture, soft skills, interview techniques and how to secure a suitable job in Canada. There is also an optional one month voluntary job practicum.

Watch the testimonial below from a former client who completed the program and for more details give us a call at 403-235-266 or visit or website.
