Becoming a PA in Scotland - working in Canada or USA?

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,


the PA profession is fairly new in the UK and they have recently started a postgrad course at my uni. I'd love to do it, I think it would be the perfect job for me, but there's a good chance i'll be moving to Canada or America in a few years time with my family. As far as I can see you have to do a specific course in the USA to be registered as a PA there, which would mean doing the entire course all over again :/ Have I got this right?


Thanks :D

That's a shame really, almost seems like a waste of money to put myself through that twice. But here's the catch - I still need to be in full time study next year to be classed as a 'dependant' whilst my parents continue with the immigration process. Any suggestions of a postgrad course that would increase my chances of acceptance to a PA course in the USA or Canada?
