3,000th agent completes ICEF training course

The 3000th agent to graduate from an ICEF agent training course completed her program last week. Alisa Shashkova from Russia finished the ICEF Agent Training Course – one of the organisation’s five courses – with what trainers say was a nearly perfect score.

ICEF offers five agent training courses

“The growth for this kind of training is showing what a demand there is to support the industry”

“We are proud to mark this milestone of 3,000 course graduates,” said Tiffany Egler, ICEF’s director of Agent Relations.

“Education agents play an important role in counselling and referring students to education providers around the world. The growth for this kind of training is showing what a demand there is to support the industry and education destination markets – including traditional markets like the US and Canada, but also emerging markets like Ireland,” she said.

“We see agents as essential to growing global student mobility and look forward to welcoming more agents from around the world as they develop their expertise in our programs.”

Along with the IATC, ICEF offers another professional course – the China Education Agent Course.

Its three destination courses include the Canada Course for Education Agents, the Irish Education Agents Course, and the US Agent Training Course, and aim to help agents looking to specialise in a specific study destination.

Professional courses seek to develop agents’ knowledge of the industry, key destinations, fundamental skills and daily operations.

All courses are free, and agents who successfully pass exams are displayed on ICEF’s website, as well as on the Qualified Education Agents (QEA) app.
