The importance of taking NOC courses:

This course is designed to train our students to find jobs in the Canadian labour market using the National Occupational Classification (NOC) and its codes. The Government of Canada developed the NOC to categorize occupational information in the Canadian labour market through a standardized framework and a system that can be easily managed, understood, and unified. Canadian Immigration (i.e., IRCC) uses the NOC to classify jobs and occupations according to specific skill levels. Canada's jobs are ranked according to a person's work and the roles and responsibilities of the job.
