About ICEF Academy The seeds of ICEF Academy were planted in 2010, with the ICEF Agent Training Course.

Since then, ICEF’s training portfolio has continued to grow with the needs of the industry. In 2022, ICEF acquired Australia’s biggest agent training platform, PIER, and its set of resources and tools including the Education Agent Training Course (EATC) and PIER Apps.

At ICEF Academy, our goal is to support professionals in international education, helping them learn more about the business of student recruitment and collectively raise standards across the sector. Our resources, courses, and industry-recognised certifications are tailored to set you up for success.
