Program description

Enrolled Agents are licensed by the federal government and have demonstrated special competence in tax matters and professional ethics, allowing them to practice before the IRS anywhere in the United States. The Enrolled Agent program is a blended learning program that prepares participants to pass the IRS Special Enrollment Examination (SEE). Sessions are structured based on the Gleim System for Success. The SEE is a three-part exam administered by Prometrics on behalf of the IRS. Candidates must successfully pass all three parts to receive IRS-EA certification.

Other important information

  • All Enrolled Agent candidates must obtain a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN).  For more information, visit the IRS website here.
  • In order to become a certified Enrolled Agent through the IRS, you will need to complete all three parts of the IRS exam - which is not part of the class or the course fee. Visit the Prometrics testing center site here for more information.
  • Enrolled Agents require 72 hours of continuing education every two years.
