IECA Summer Training Institutesti-logo-small

This five-day Institute is designed for those who are in the early stages of working as an independent educational consultant (IEC), and for those who are considering becoming an IEC. Whether you are just beginning to think about joining the profession or have been in business for a year or two and seeing clients on a limited basis, the IECA Summer Institute will help to set you up for success as you learn more about managing and promoting a business, working effectively with students and families, building a knowledge of the wide range of options available to students, and establishing a professional, competent, and ethical practice.

We’ll post information about our 2022 Summer Training Institute in early 2022.  If you’d like us to send you information when it becomes available, click here.

Feedback from our virtual 2020 IECA-SI participants:

“I couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience. So worth the time and money. I thought with my 25 years of school counseling that I might be restless in some sessions, but they all energized me and every one taught me new things and gave me new ideas.”
—R.A., IECA-SI 2020 Participant

“I got so much out of this Institute! I feel that I learned more in one week than I’ve learned in 5 courses in other online programs I’ve done. Everything was beautifully executed—the scheduling, the online format, the content and clarify of presentations, the opportunity to ask questions and the supportive collegial atmosphere.”
E.M., IECA-SI 2020 Participant

“Outstanding faculty and staff! Everyone has been extremely helpful, approachable and knowledgeable! This was one of the best and the most effective professional development activities/institutes that I have attended. It is absolutely a must for anyone trying to get into the IEC business.”
A.S., IECA-SI 2020 Participant

“Thanks for an uplifting and informative week. The investment went well beyond the week of sessions as I still have so much information to sift through in my binder, along with inspiration and action items to keep me busy for the foreseeable future.”
—T.M., IECA-SI 2020 Participant

“Thank you for providing such a wonderful virtual conference! The amount of knowledge shared, advice provided, and support given by all of the faculty was incredible.”
