The Education Agent Training Course is an online course supported by Australian Education International (AEI) and the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
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. Stanley College encourages the qualification and all of the College’s preferred Education Agents have completed the test.

The website offers a free-of-charge online tutorial recommended for all Education Agent staff members to become knowledgeable in Australian international education standards under the revised National Code.
