FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I REGISTER?
Register in person. Bring your WELARC referral and your Permanent Resident Card. Registration starts 4 weeks before a new session begins and ends 2 weeks after courses have begun.
I AM A CITIZEN. CAN I ATTEND CLASSES AT EESE?
EESE is funded for Permanent Residents only. Citizens are not eligible to attend classes.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO STUDY AT EESE?
EESE is fully funded for Permanent Residents. If you are a Permanent Resident, the only cost is your time to attend classes.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE SCHEDULE OF COURSES YOU OFFER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
Our course schedule changes each session according to the needs of our potential students. Therefore, we make the current schedule available one month before courses start.
WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I GET AFTER COMPLETING THE COURSE?
Upon completion of your course, you will receive a detailed report card which provides you with comments about your accomplishments and suggestions on areas to improve. If you attend 85% or more, you will also receive a certificate of participation. This is a valuable document for your resume.
DO I GET A BENCHMARK?
EESE doesn't not provide benchmarks. EESE courses are skill-based, guided by CLB competencies and designed for Stage 2 learners (CLB 5 to 8). However, EESE courses do not cover all the CLB competencies required for benchmark evaluations. Students can request to have their benchmarks re-evaluated at WELARC after completing EESE courses.
CAN I SWITCH CLASSES?
During the first two weeks of a session, you may switch courses if seats are available. See the front desk to fill out a Course Change Request Forms.
DOES EESE HAVE ONGOING ENROLLMENT?
You may register for EESE courses until the third week of the session.
I WILL BE AWAY AND WON'T BE ABLE TO ATTEND SOME CLASSES. WILL IT CAUSE A PROBLEM?
Regular and punctual attendance is expected at EESE just like in the Canadian workplace. If you have a preplanned absence, perhaps this is not the right session for you to register.
CAN I RETAKE A COURSE?
Students who have completed less than 50% of a course, may re-register for this course. In certain circumstances, students who have taken 50% or more of a course may request permission to retake it.
IF I WITHDRAW FROM A COURSE, MAY I REGISTER AGAIN IN THE FUTURE?
Yes. We welcome you to register again when you are available to attend.
