There are a few schools around that teach the course but we spend time on what you need to know and keep the classes below 30 people so there is quality time for everyone as you acquire a deep knowledge and understanding of immigration.

Our classes are taught by seasoned immigration consultants not attorneys that over teach information that you do not need to know or have not use for.

Background Check

Everyone looking to become a certified immigration consultant must submit to a federal consultant must submit to a federal and state level background check via live scan.

Live scan is a process by which fingerprints are taken electronically and submitted electronically within a period of 24 hours to the FBI and DOJ. Many people are not aware that the reason these need to be done is because fingerprints are not "saved anywhere. Live scanned fingerprints are used to compare to the fingerprints on file by criminals. If there are no matches, the background check via live scan is complete.

Live Scan fingerprinting is ALWAYS offered at our immigration consultant training classes offered by Develop Point Education through Immigration Nation US.
