    If you have a 4 year degree, you should be fine. The evaluator can determine that. If you have a 2 year degree, then you also need 3 years of experience.

    Hi ,
    I have no idea who were the free trade officer. If ur concerned is to the officer who rejected , i can assure who was he. He was litttle old around 50 age. SO if i get my evaluation done from where u gave me the phone number , will be helpful.
    thankz for your adivce, lEtz see wht happens

    take care

    bzuccaro brings up a good point. Many denials occur because there was no Free Trade Office present at the time, and because the case in question may not be 100% straight forward. Call the POE ahead of time, and ask them for times when the free trade officer is on duty. Some borders such as Champlain, NY only have a free trade officer during regular business hours. I learned this lesson the hard way, and I was denied the first time I tried to get my TN,

    By the way, if you're going through a Canadian airport, chances are that you're not going through a POE, your going through preclearance (aka pre-flight inspection - PFI) . Not a problem, just terminology. POE's are only on US soil.

    You can start here:
