Bringing the EA Profession to U.S. Colleges
NAEA's Educating America initiative raises awareness of the enrolled agent (EA) career option among community college students across the country. While most financial information students are aware of careers in accounting and bookkeeping, few are aware of the EA license, the most expansive license awarded by the IRS. Therefore, NAEA member volunteers travel to colleges and events to showcase and educate those interested in tax and finance on the EA profession and what it takes to become an EA.
Learn more about the benefits of having a career as an EA, and use the tools on the right to access presentation tools to bring EA education to a college near you.
“I believe the enrolled agent exam review course provided through the National Association of Enrolled Agents’ (NAEA) “Educating America” program enhances career opportunities for our students and members of our community. We also see the review course and earning the enrolled agent credential as a benefit to our accounting and business students. We have offered the review course since 2012 and plan to expand to all of our campuses, including our on-line division. We are also developing a tax certificate program to enable individuals to enhance their tax skills and progress in the tax preparation field. Furthermore, I see the review course as a benefit to other community colleges and four-year institutions around the nation.”
