Our CEO, Andre Celotto, has Completed his Postnomial in PLCGS Certification

I have been taking courses through the National Institute for Genealogical Studies for the last four years.

This week, I received my grade for the final course in Analysis and Skills Mentoring Program Part 3, the last of my 40 courses requirement by receiving the Postnomials PLCGS (Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies).

Within this course work, I completed my Advanced Certificates in Genealogical Methodology and Canadian Genealogical Studies. I also finished a basic Certificate in Italian Studies, which has enriched my genealogical research skills in the Italian language when searching for Italian records and Genealogy, especially for preparing Italian citizenship applications.  

It’s been a long four years of additional Genealogy Education towards my professional career as a CEO of the Celotto Genealogy Services.

Now, the next step is to continue my education towards my Master’s Program in Genealogical, Palaeographic and Heraldic Studies at Strathclyde University in Scotland which I commenced in January of 2019.
