Exam of Extramural Education Profession (EEEP)

Generally, parents, students and employers rely on tutors’ academic qualifications or work experience that is difficult to verify to judge their abilities, and lack a set of objective criteria to judge the tutor’s “professional education” ability. In order to promote the continuous development of the education and training profession, help the industry to set uniform standards, and enable instructors and practitioners to obtain accreditation qualifications, the Association has designed the "Teaching and Training Professional Examination" for practitioners or those who intend to join the education and training industry to apply for the exam.
