Certified by the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC)
In 2009, shortly after IDP Education established its presence in the US, we became one of the founding members of an important organization called AIRC. AIRC (American International Recruitment Council) was created by senior U.S. education leaders to safeguard the interests of both international students and enrolling institutions through the promotion of ethical, standards-based international recruitment strategies. It is the only professional education membership association focused solely on issues relating to international student recruitment and is the only provider of independent certification of recruitment agencies based on a rigorous accreditation model.
IDP is proud to be one of the very first international student recruitment agencies certified by AIRC and we are pleased to report that we achieved re-certification in 2014.
IDP Education has been awarded Certification by the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC) through December 2024. AIRC is a Standards Development Organization, which is registered with the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Trade Commission. In order to achieve AIRC Certification, an agency must successfully complete a rigorous self-evaluation and external review process based on the AIRC Certification Standards, which evaluate the agency's business practices and the effectiveness of the services rendered in recruiting qualified students to accredited educational institutions in the United States.
