How does TAICEP support our professionals?

TAICEP offers an opportunity to take charge of your career.

TAICEP fills the gaps that currently exist among the various professional organizations by providing a one-stop-shop for resources, professional development, networking, and one-on-one access to highly specialized expertise across the profession.

How does TAICEP support the field?

International credential evaluation is a small, highly specialized field that will need to grow to take care of the influx of international students and professionals who are increasingly sought after and mobile. TAICEP is an official organization committed to moving the field of international credential evaluation forward, through activities such as research, determining best practices, supporting professional development.

How can TAICEP help if you are not an international credential evaluator?

Many organizations and institutions outsource their international credential evaluations. One must know how to apply the information in the evaluation reports to the institution or organization. Being a TAICEP member gives you direct access to international credential evaluation professionals who may assist you in understanding evaluation methodologies and how your institution should handle evaluation reports received.
