British NVQ's in Canada, are they valued?

Post by MGwilliam » Wed May 09, 2018 6:47 am

This is my first topic, so apologies is the format or etiquette is wrong

I have 2 NVQ's in Aeronautical Engineering (Aircraft Mechanical Maintenance), Aircraft Maintenance Engineering Technology and Engineering Manufacture (Aerospace)

My question is will they count for anything when I move to BC this month?

I understand that I may have to do some conversion stuff to stay at the level I currently work at but I am hoping they are not worthless over there.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I'm guessing National Vocational Qualification...

Your best bet would be to contact Transport Canada directly. Unfortunately, I think at best you may get a reduced apprenticeship time based upon documented experience, but you will still need to complete a Transport Canada approved basic training program.
