The International Council for Online Educational Standards (ICOES) is a Dutch foundation established in 2013. Its inception was driven by the need for an impartial body dedicated to ensuring the quality of educational programs. This involves distinguishing reputable educational offerings from those that fail to meet established benchmarks. ICOES’ primary mission revolves around enhancing and upholding the standards of online educational institutions and their educational products.
ICOES operates under the oversight of an independent board of management, assuring alignment with its core objectives. The foundation boasts an Advisory Board composed of distinguished professors who have played a pivotal role in formulating and implementing the Accreditation Standards. These standards form a quality charter, integral for the annual evaluation of both prospective and existing accredited course providers.
At ICOES, our core mission involves granting accreditation and quality certification to educational institutions and online educators who seek validation for their educational content. We meticulously review and provide constructive input to ensure that all endorsed training materials align with the utmost educational standards. This meticulous process enhances profile, credibility, and trustworthiness.
