The NAFSA Core Education Program (CEP) is focused on building the foundational competencies within our field.

For professionals who wish to deepen their current skills, acquire skills in a specialized area, or gain cross-cutting functional skills, NAFSA CEP Workshops introduce model practices and in-depth exploration of job-specific skills in areas including international student advising, education abroad, and international enrollment management.

Each workshop is an organized live synchronous training and uses a core curriculum and materials so that key content areas are covered consistently regardless of venue. Participants in the workshops receive a certificate of completion from NAFSA. Workshops are delivered by Trainer Corps members.

NAFSA e-Learning Courses are also part of the Core Education Program. We are also pleased to announce our new course Essentials of International Credential Evaluation.
