Date: Summer 2011

AIRC CertifiedAccess American Education (AAE) Announces Being Certified by the American International Recruitment Council(AIRC)

HCMC, Vietnam, June 17th – AAE receives its AIRC certification, which means that it is now recognized as a quality provider of educational knowledge and information to Vietnamese students and families and that AAE adheres to the highest ethical standards.

The announcement on June 16, 2011 is a key achievement for Access American Education(AAE). AAE, an educational consultancy agency, is the first educational consulting agency exclusively focused on the Vietnamese market. The company was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the United States in 2008 and opened its Vietnam office in Ho Chi Minh City in 2009. Since that time, AAE has grown in size and currently represents over 140 U.S. educational institutions. AAE focuses on overseas study in the United States only – and no other countries. AAE is the first educational consulting agency exclusively focused on the Vietnamese market to be awarded this honor and only the second agency in the country to be AIRC certified.

The American International Recruitment Council(AIRC) was established in 2008 to develop standards of ethical practice for educational institutions and student recruitment agents for the recruitment of international students to American colleges and universities. AIRC was conceived and created by accredited U.S. colleges and universities as a non-profit Standards Development Organization. Their standards are used successfully by a range of associations concerned with the intersection of business and professional practice.

Mr. Brad Wertheimer, President of AAE, is proud to receive this certification. “Being certified by the American International Recruitment Council is a key achievement for Access American Education. This honor validates all of the hard work our team has done for Vietnamese students over the past two years and we look forward to serving the Vietnamese market for many years to come.”

At the AAE’s office in Vietnam, located at 31A Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Q.1 HCMC, students and parents are increasingly coming to AAE for assistance and advice on studying in the U.S. because of the company’s low fees, access to the best American colleges and universities, high scholarship offers and because of the fact that there are American counselors and managers working in the Vietnam office. Students and parents know they can trust the information given to them and know that they are receiving expert advice that will help them be successful in studying in the US. AAE and its staff members know and understand American education.

AAE, as a small agency, is different from other educational agencies in Vietnam. Vietnamese students can get on Skype at midnight with managers, they receive the mobile telephone numbers of counselors, and they can learn from blogs written for AAE from Vietnamese students currently in the US. AAE embraces social media and treats every student like one of their family. These practices have led to a loyal student following on the Company’s Facebook page. As a result, the Company Is currently looking for growth opportunities in neighboring regions/provinces such as Can Tho/Mekong Region and Vung Tau.

The certification from the American International Recruitment Council represents a significant milestone in the history of AAE. AAE has strictly adhered to all ethical standards established by the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC) in all dealings with students, families, and universities since the starting of the company. The management of AAE and staff will continue their good work and help Vietnamese students apply to and attend colleges and universities in the U.S. with ongoing support in the areas of career counseling and college placement as well as help students set up transportation and living arrangements while they are in the U.S.
