First off, thank you so much for your time and assistance provided to everyone in this thread. After reading countless pages till my eyes glossed over, and not being able to find much when searching the thread; I'd like to ask what you can say regarding my situation.
In late July I was permanently laid off/downsized from my position where I had worked for just over 4 years. I currently have a Diploma in Computer Programming (2005) and Business Degree (2012) if that factors into anything.
I am debating getting my Realtor license and see that it is something SC appears to cover from my reading.
Of course being recently unemployed, once my severance ends in just over 2 months time, I will be applying for EI. Not understanding the whole program and how it works with individuals on EI, or applying for EI, I am really not sure the "questions" to even ask you regarding problems, etc.
A realtor license/training isn't something that takes 2 years, it can be done in 1-2 months. If I am on EI, or applying for EI, am I also able to apply to SC to cover the cost of realtor courses (approx 3400~) ?
Would SC give living allowances greater than what my EI entitlement is ? How do the two play together (does SC impact EI)? If SC gives an allowance to living expenses, is it only during the time of my courses?
If there is any information I can provide to you that would better help you inform me on my situation please let me know.
So grateful for your time and guidance.
