IEC Training Centre
The IEC training Centre (International Education Consulting Training Centre) is a specialized and training centre staffed by education administrative professionals with decades of experience in international education consulting and administration. They are all sincerely passionate about participating in the evolving of international education, elevating its industry standard, and thoroughly authenticating the expertise of those SIECA members who deserve it.
The IEC Training Centre works closely with SIECA, while at the same time offers others important training courses in the form of seminars, webinars, and even one-on-one coaching to consultants, international education enterprises, and directly to international students (and/or their families)
The SIECA Professional Certification course covers all facets of preparing students and their families for international study.
