Prerequisites: Ability to demonstrate a high level of Inuktut comprehension

The Inuit language at this articulate level features rich and very specific terms although many have disappeared from daily use with the dominance of English in the workplace and education system.
With efforts underway in Nunavut to advance the use of Inuktut in the workplace, there is a strong need for advanced Inuktut terminology in a number of fields. If you’re an Inuktut-speaking professional who would like to enhance your understanding and your ability to use advanced Inuktut language, this course would be ideal for you.
