Safety in traveling with International Career Studies


Nothing is more important to us than your safety and security. When participating in an international internship through ICS, you can focus entirely on getting the most of your work and cultural experience. This means not spending a moment being concerned about your safety as ICS’s security team, lead by former RCMP Chief Superintendent, Ben Soave, perform regular and thorough assessments of all destinations and employment settings before they are approved to offer any services on ICS’s behalf.

Mr. Soave, who retired from the RCMP in 2005 after 35 years, with rank of Chief Superintendent, has been decorated by Canadian and foreign governments for his achievements against organized crime and terrorism. Highly regarded for his strategic vision and his tactical ability to dynamically coordinate complex international investigations, Mr. Soave and his international network of enforcement, intelligence and associate agencies is committed to providing clients with superior service and excellence in the areas of threat and risk assessments, corporate and background intelligence gathering and risk management consulting.

With Mr. Soave and his team on duty, you can take your mind off any concerns about safety and focus it squarely on savouring every moment of your unforgettable experience.

Hear what a parent has to say about the ICS experience….

“When our daughter informed us that she wanted to complete her two month internship in Isla de la Juventud – Cuba, we were very wary, because it would`ve been her first trip in a foreign country without her family.

When the procedures began, our worries diminished considerably. When she arrived to the destination, our daughter received all the aid and support promised by International Career Studies: she was welcomed between the flights from Havana to Nueva Gerona, as well as being housed. ICS organized everything to ensure a smooth process.

As parents, we were very pleased with all the support that our daughter is receiving during her internship. We know that an entire team is making sure to take good care of the students and to help them feel as if they were right at home. During the first week, we also communicated with Ben multiple times, which reassured us that everything was going well.

All parents worry about their children, regardless of age, but thanks to this team, there were no problems whatsoever. Furthermore, some procedures are ongoing to allow Alexandra`s father to join her during her last week of internship. We recommend ICS` services without hesitation!”
