I need to sit and pass the IAAS or OISC?

Choose the course that is most appropriate to your needs. The four-day course is intended for OISC Level 3 and the two-day course is intended for OISC Level 2. We hold a 1 day IAAS training session. The trainers will usually refer to the exams during the training, but the main emphasis is on teaching you about immigration and asylum law, not examination technique. We strongly recommend that you book onto the examination revision day if you are taking the IAAS exams. These courses are delivered by examiners or those with intimate knowledge of the exams and make use of HJT’s collection of specially devised exam questions, marking schemes and model answers.

I know nothing about immigration law but would like to learn some basics. What does HJT suggest?

The two-day course  is probably most suitable. The trainees often have a wide range of pre-existing knowledge but the trainers will explain immigration law from the basics upwards. Some prior legal knowledge would be an advantage but is not absolutely necessary. The two day course might be what you are looking for if you work in public services and have contact with immigrants and asylum seekers, for example.

Is there anything more basic than the two-day course available?

Yes, HJT Training delivers a basic introduction to immigration law. This course is aimed at a level equivalent to OISC Level 1.

What is the difference between the two-day and four-day courses?

The two day course is essentially a stripped down version of the four day course and is pitched at a lower level. It covers a lot of the same ground, but in a bit less depth.

How much time is there for discussion and questions?

Immigration law is a vast and complex area of law. While HJT Training has developed and delivered courses taking over two weeks with detailed case studies, examples and exercises, there is insufficient demand to run such courses publicly. The four and two day courses are highly intensive as there is so much to deliver in the short time available. However, there is always a chance to ask questions and our experienced trainers will illustrate the course with real life examples.

Do I receive a certificate upon completion of your courses?

Yes. Certificates are issued upon request and once full payment is completed.

How does online training work?

HJT now has a range of online courses on Once you have paid for the online course you will have access to this course in your account you will have access to relevant materials, you should study these carefully. You will then be ready to complete the multiple choice questions (MCQs). You must attempt all the questions. There is no time limit but the number of CPD hours on offer indicates the estimated maximum time it should take for you to read the training material and complete the MCQs. In order to pass the assessment and gain CPD credit you must obtain at least 65%. HJT Training marks the MCQs using marking schemes drawn up by suitably qualified assessors. CPD hours can only normally be claimed if the answers are returned to us within twenty one days of receiving the course materials.

How do I claim online CPD hours?

You cannot claim CPD hours for reading without demonstrating your understanding in some way. To claim CPD hours you must therefore apply your knowledge by answering the multiple choice questions about the materials you have read. MIL has been tested on legal professionals with varying degrees of knowledge and experience, on which basis we have determined this course and its accompanying questions should take one hour to complete.

Who do I contact to book the IAAS or OISC exam?

You should contact the Law Society directly for the IAAS exam and the OISC to book the OISC exam. Dates are scheduled directly on their websites.
