ICS Canada Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
I feel this is a complete waste of money and time . First the materials are way behind the current college courses. To pay the full amount if you cannot complete you have to pay the full amount. That is just ripping people hard earned write off and that would that they dont really care if succeed they just want the bucks. I will never take a course from here again.
I took the medical administrative assistant course. I completed it in 10 months. I would highly recommend this course. I then got a job with the government and they did a background check and this school was an accredited school. I know make $27/hr. Benefits and all. Before you take a course, you should call a human resource department with a company you are interested in. That's what I did. I also took the Educational Assistant diploma but when I moved to Edmonton, their school board has an agreement with a college there that they will accept employees who take their program. It was frustrating and I had to register with that college in order to be employed with that school board.
For anyone taking this course. It is useful. IF you are going to START your OWN business. If you are looking at a career with it, you won't get anywhere. It is not recognized. Its not a waste of $$ in my eyes. I have learned alot. I plan to go into business for myself.
I enrolled with ICS Canada and completed my Online Diploma with no problems or any draw backs at all. I am proud to have Studied at ICS and now my son has completed his schooling will also study Aircraft Maintenance through ICS Canada. I will promote ICS Canada wherever I go! Thank You for giving me that step up!! E. G. Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer.
I loved taking my courses through ICS. Before you take the course - call a potential employer and ask if they accept it. I took the diploma and have also finished my high school.diploma. my current govt job did a background check and now I'm making $27.99/hr.
Got part way through the course and hit a glitch after I was in a car accident. All online no books and very expensive. Was sent to collection and charged about $350. more than I owed.These people are obviously corrupt with no morals. Avoid this scam at all costs!!!
I signed up with them thinking I would be able to go to court and pursue my career after paying $3000.00 for school , only to find out once I was done paying that the diploma wasn't accredited in Hamilton, Ontario which is Canada and on the website says it IS .They knew of this this but yet lied to me and probably thousands of more, if they were fair and a legit school they would have reimbursed us half at least of our tuition . Think this school is a rip off so i suggest actually going to the one that doesn't scam people and replies back when people send emails been years and I'm really upset due to this wrote emails and haven't heard anything back graduated 2012 and its 2017 and I cannot get a job in my field anywhere . Feel like all that time invested and money I LOST and could have had my career if i would have gone here to a local college , Just sad because none cares in regards to this just doesn't make any sense why this school is open still feel like I got robbed from my time and money.Please save you're money and time .
I do not recommend enrolling in ICS. I was not aware there was an expiry date on my course and was so disappointed to log on today to write an exam and find that I was no longer allowed. My "lesson plan" they have on the site outlined time frames for each course that took me up to the end of the year with no indications that the dates would not work. There was no email send to me to notify me that there was a time limit approaching so I assumed that the dates listed on my study were valid, especially since I was not finished with the payments. I had taken a through them in the 90s before they were with Penn Foster and it was much better. I had planned on taking a couple more courses through them but after this experience I will look at other correspondence courses that will allow me to do the courses on my time and not just state that in the advertisements.
Well I had taken this major and so far its been great. I have found job but again those job have been contracting or temp not permanent position. So let see what well be happening. I have taken the step to upgrade my career too. I would recommended this college to other because most of the people have full time jobs and they don't have time to study. This way they will be able to finished their study and enjoy there personal life.
I had taken the course after receiving information on it that said it was recognised by all provinces in Canada I also called to verify Alberta as one of them, they assured me it was. They also mentioned you could get started into a business if you wanted or work for a company. At the end of the course upon passing in the 90's they give you a list of suppliers etc. I come to find out that Alberta doesn't recognise ICS online school and neither do employers in Alberta. So I had called them and told them that the course isn't even recognized in Alberta they gave me the big run around and long story short Alberta is the only province not to recognized this school so if you live in the province don't take any of their courses because nobody will hire you and Alberta's regulations for trades is the toughest in Canada even tougher than the U.S and you need a trade certification in Appliance repair by a trade school that's recognized in only Alberta . The course is very good it's just not recognised in all provinces Alberta I know for sure.
