One valuable seminar for foreign attorneys is called “INTERNATIONAL LAW SEMINAR”. The purpose of this Seminar is to study the US Legal System and the opportunities of Chapter 16 of the rules of the International Law Section of the Florida Bar whose purpose is to permit a person who is admitted to practice law in a foreign country to file an application to be certified by the Supreme Court of Florida, without examination, to render services in this state as a Foreign Legal Consultant regarding the laws of the Country in which the attorney is admitted to practice.
Another very valuable Seminar is for medical Assistance. An alternative of work is permitted while the doctor is preparing at NAFA for a full medical validation examination. This program is designed to provide the student with the skills and knowledge necessary to obtain an entry level position as a Medical Assistant, Phlebotomist and Psychiatric technician.
Moreover, seminars are held for teachers, architects, pharmacists, administrators and other professionals.
All these Seminars represent success for NAFA’s principal goals. That is, reintegrate brilliant foreign professionals who are residing in the United States; most of which are performing very different jobs from their careers and professions. In this way, NAFA helps them to re establish themselves into their careers, beginning new productive lives to benefit themselves, their families, their native and new residential communities.
