About Our OISC Level 1 Training
Our OISC Level 1 Training covers the following topics:
- A look at the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC).
- An analysis of the structures, terminology and framework of UK and nationality law.
- An in-depth look at immigration rules that fall in the following topics:

- Other Visa categories
- A comprehensive look at example OISC competence assessment questions.

We don’t want you to feel lost in the crowd. That’s why we always keep our class sizes small. The training you’ll receive during our course is designed to help you pass the OISC competence assessment. Moreover we encourage delegates to engage, interact and ask questions.
We understand life can be unpredictable and circumstances can change. You may need to adjust your course date and so we allow you to reschedule your OISC course date once at no charge. Please contact our support team to do so. If you need to reschedule your course date again, we may need to charge a small admin fee to change the course date.
How Do The Courses Work?
Our one-day online OISC Level 1 course is split into 4 sessions, broken up by a lunchbreak and 2 shorter, 15-minute, breaks. We encourage you to ask questions, engage on the chat and network with others in the immigration sector.
After the course, you receive a course recording and a certificate. We recognise that learning is a journey, and so our team is on hand after the course to help address any questions or queries arising from the course.
Who should take the OISC Level 1 course?
You may need to take the Level 1 course if you fall into any of the below categories: a) you want to pass the OISC Level 1 competence assessment; b) you want to set up your own OISC business; c) you want to increase your knowledge of the OISC and of UK immigration law; or d) if you are new to UK immigration law and want to decide if working as an OISC adviser is the right career path for you.

What can I do with OISC Level 1 accreditation?
Following the government guidance, OISC level 1 advisers are permitted to undertake advisory and assistance work, and submit basic immigration applications including the following categories:
- spouses/unmarried partners under the five-year route
- other dependent relatives
- Settled and Pre-settled Status application
- Points Based Immigration System applications
- Other work visas permitted under the rules (for example – UK Ancestry Visa or Frontier Worker Permit)
- Applications covering extensions of stay and settlement under Appendix ECAA, formerly covered by the European Communities Association Agreement (ECAA).
- Diplomats, their family members and domestic staff
- BN(O) Status Holder
Where cases or applications become more complex, such as with illegal entry, human rights grounds, or application rejections, the adviser should refer to a higher level adviser.
No substantive asylum work, such as making applications or appeals, is permitted at Level 1.
About Your OISC Course Trainers
Our immigration law tutors are experienced OISC-accredited advisers and have been working in the immigration field for many years. They are knowledgeable in their field and teach OISC delegates the information required in order to pass the OISC exam.
OISC Mock Papers
Our exam marking service provides you with knowledge, practical experience and confidence in preparing for the OISC competence assessment.
Less than half of the people who sit an OISC competence assessment receive a pass grade. We’re here to ensure you are in the best position to be in the successful minority.
Our exam marking service gives you the opportunity to have your mock exam answers marked by our team of experienced immigration professionals. We provide you with exam papers based on real questions from OISC assessments. Our immigration experts will then review your work and provide you with feedback. The feedback will include a comprehensive analysis of your answers, including what you did well and tips on how you can improve to answer the questions in the most effective way possible.
You can choose either a single paper package or a three paper package where you can put the feedback you receive into immediate effect.
If you purchase a single mock exam paper with a course, you will receive the paper for half price.
The course lasts for a full-day, because our course is designed for busy OISC practitioners, many of whom will have a queue of clients to serve. Our course is designed to be concise and to cover the material you need to know about to pass the OISC competence assessment.
A typical course agenda looks like this:
9:30am – Course begins.
11:00am – Morning break.
1:00pm – Lunch break.
3:00pm – Afternoon break.
5:00pm – Course ends.
Yes! Every person who successfully completes the course receives a certificate from Pacific Legal Training. You can use this certificate when applying to the OISC.
We do not charge VAT on our prices, so the cost of our course is £200.00. Included in the price is the training material which we provide to delegates.
Our course is designed to help you prepare for and pass the OISC competence assessment. In addition, we have introduced Mock Exam Papers, where we have created mock exam papers based on the OISC syllabus. You can then practise them on your own and then we provide you with exam results. Some people tell us our exams are more difficult than the real thing!
At the present time, due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have no scheduled classroom training. This is the safest decision to protect those involved with our courses. All of our courses are held online and we strive to make them as interactive and engaging as we can.
