The USATC is specifically for education agents counselling students from other countries wishing to study in the US at any level (from elementary to post-graduate) and in any program.
The course is available online and is delivered free of charge. Agents taking it can enjoy its self-paced format; they can study one section at a time and progress through the course as it suits them. Once they feel confident with the course material, they can take the USATC examination that is available online through the USATC website, at all ICEF workshops, and when advertised at related international education events. If agents complete the examination successfully, they will be identified by ICEF as a USCG on the ICEF website.
