Professional Certification in Education Abroad

The Professional Certification in Education Abroad program is intended for any and all colleagues in the field who want to certify their knowledge and expertise in the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.

Participants complete six modules based on the nine Standards of Good Practice and a Culminating Project. Modules can be accessed online or by attending Forum workshops located in the United States and abroad; attendance at live workshops is included in the certification fee. Assignments are designed to be challenging and have practical application in participants’ current and future positions. Highly-qualified, trained Forum Certification Assessors with expertise in each of the Standards review and provide valuable feedback.

This program is designed to be individualized, self-paced and flexible. Participants who complete the certification will be recognized on The Forum’s website and may utilize The Forum’s “Certified Professional” Mark on resumes and curricula vitae, email signatures, business cards, letterhead and websites. Special recognition is also given at The Forum’s Annual and European Conferences.
