AAE To Attend 2013 AIRC & ICEF Conferences

AAE will have representatives attending AIRC’s Fifth Annual Conference on December 5-7, 2013 and the ICEF North America Workshop on December 9-11, 2013 in Miami, Florida.

Message From Brad Wertheimer, Managing Member of Access American Education, LLC

When we decided to form Access American Education, LLC (AAE) in 2008,our overriding goal was to do well and do good at the same time. We quickly learned that AIRC had recently been formed to professionalize an industry which had little legitimacy in the United States.

Upon reading the AIRC standards, and learning about the certification process, we decided to organize our company, from day one, to be AIRC compliant – and to our knowledge, we are the only company in the world which can make this claim. All systems and operations put in place at AAE have taken AIRC standards into account. AIRC’s attention to ethics and transparent business practice has been a fantastic roadmap for us in our earliest days, and continue to be core to our business.

Our AIRC certification has opened many doors for us, even at institutions that are not members and were hesitant to use our services. AIRC certification is an indication of significant commitment and quality. While the recent NACAC ruling is a giant step in the right direction, our hope is that institutions will, in time, make AIRC certification a pre-requisite for business, since our certification protects their interests, as well as those of the students.
