APEIRO Institute follows strict policies and procedures when marketing our products to Domestic and International Students. As a result, we encourage our partnered Education Agents to be update with the industry changes in the international education sector in Australia. While this also forms as a part of compliance in the operations of APEIRO Institute, the Education Agents will be equipped with latest knowledge of the Australian Education sector and thus provide exceptional advice for clients interested to enroll for courses in Australia.
The Education Agent Training Course (EATC)
The Education Agent Training Course (EATC) is an online course supported by Australian Education International (AEI) and the Department of Home Affairs (DHA).
The course provides Education Agents with information about the Australian education system and Australia as a study destination, education quality assurance issues and the Australian visa regulation system. Agents who wish to have their extensive knowledge recognised can take a formal test. Agents successfully passing the test become Qualified Education Agent Counsellors (QEAC). APEIRO Institute encourages Education Agents to take the test and obtain a qualification.
