Am I eligible to write the RISIA entry-to-practice exam and become a certified RISIA?
The RISIA designation is designed for in-service International Student Advisers (ISAs) and other professionals working in the education sector in Canada whose responsibilities include offering immigration advice to students. If you are unsure whether your current employment makes you eligible, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
