The Education Agent Training Course (EATC) is offered by International Education Services in partnership with AEI and DIAC.


Those wishing to become a Qualified Education Agent Counsellor (QEAC) need to undertake and pass the Formal Assessment of the Education Agent Training Course (EATC). Agents can take the formal assessment test just before the ANZA Workshop. It will take up to 80 minutes to complete the test.

The EATC is delivered via the PIER Online website, which contains readings, links to related resources, self assessment tasks (often in the form of case studies), and self-paced tutorial exercises, including self-monitoring multiple choice questions.

Pre-requisites: There are no qualifications or specific language requirements to the EATC. However, a minimum IELTS score of 5.0 would be advisable for speakers of English as a Second Language.

Registration: Agents can access and use the training material at no cost as many times as they wish. The EATC is delivered online, and continuously available. For access, please register for the EATC (registration is free of charge).

Content: The EATC covers four areas:

  • Australia, the AQF and Career Trends (AQF)
  • Legislation and Regulations (REG)
  • Working Effectively in International Education (WEF)
  • Professional Standards and Ethics (ETH)

Education agents who have successfully completed the formal assessment are listed as Qualified Education Agent Counsellors. Click here to see a list of these agents.

Once your EATC registration is approved and you receive login access to the PIER platform, you may login and book to sit the EATC test.
