Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Does the ATS help any in the testing, or do you still have to write their tests. I understand they are different but so similar theory behind the tests. Not exactly sure what you're asking but ATS has nothing to do with CBSA testing. ATS is Applicant testing services. If you are wanting to apply to...
