Thousands of organizations across the country share one thing in common: learning programs guided by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
IACET’s mission is to promote and enhance quality in continuing education and training (CE/T) through research, education and the development and continuous improvement of criteria, principles and standards. Our history includes development of the original Continuing Education Unit (CEU) and creation and maintenance of the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training.
Using the ANSI/IACET Standard, in-depth research on the learning process and a nationwide network of experts, IACET helps companies, associations, government agencies and other CE/T providers develop a framework for continuous improvement and deliver a superior learning experience.
What these organizations also get: a competitive edge. With IACET accreditation, a CE/T provider tells the world it is committed to best practices in adult learning and that it has successfully mastered IACET’s rigorous Authorized Provider Accreditation process.
IACET supports organizations pursuing accreditation, reaccreditation and overall CE/T benchmarking and improvement with workshops, webinars, online modules and more.
We guide learners to Authorized Providers and resources and accrediting bodies to a greater understanding of the ANSI/IACET Standard.
How can you be sure that a continuing education or training program delivers solid learning outcomes? That it’s offered through an accredited provider? That the processes used in its development adhere to best practices in instructional design? IACET, the Council on the Continuing Education Unit and a U.S. Department of Education task force were created to address questions like these.Read on to learn more about our evolution.
IACET leads the way in bringing quality, excellence and integrity to continuing education and training programs around the world.
