The Irish Education Agent Course (IEAC), created and developed by ICEF, is the first of its kind and supports professional development for agents specialising in Ireland as a study destination.
To ensure that agents have access to the most accurate and current information possible, this course was developed following extensive consultation with institutions and various stakeholders in Ireland, including organisations, associations, and government entities.
Education agents who wish to further their professional development and focus on Ireland as a study destination should take the IEAC. While they will not be officially accredited or endorsed by the Irish Government as a result of passing the IEAC exam, agents will receive a certificate confirming them as Irish Course Graduates (ICG) and recognising them internationally as qualified Ireland consultants for the international education industry.
Successful candidates will have their name, photo and company details including their website published on the Irish Course Graduate (ICG) Finder.
All Irish Course Graduates will also be included in the Qualified Education Agents (QEA) app for smartphones produced by ICEF and PIER. This contains the names of more than 10 000 qualified agents worldwide – a valuable resource for educators looking to connect with expert agencies!
