iCARE Mandatory Training
All education agents employed at iCARE Recognized CIEC Member Agencies are required to take DFAIT’s course for education agents. The lead agent at the agency headquarters (agency contact) must also pass the exam. CIEC invites agents who have already taken the exam to apply for CIEC agent membership and attain a certificate of their compliance with iCARE Standards. Please see the below excerpt from www.CanadaCourse.ca.
The Canada Course for Education Agents was produced by Foreign Affairs and International Trade, Canada in cooperation with the Canadian Consortium for International Education and Marketing (CCIEM) and ICEF. The Canada Course supports professional development for agents specializing in Canada as a study destination.
By taking the Canada Course, agents will acquire a firm foundation in the benefits and organization of Canada’s education systems, and will gain access to resources with which to help international students study in Canada at the most appropriate institutions and in the best programs for their goals.
