IACET Authorized Provider (AP) accreditation brings with it many benefits, including:
Membership in a select community of organizations that share a commitment to rigor, excellence and integrity in continuing education and training (CE/T).
To ensure that your organization continues to meet quality continuous education and training practices, IACET requires that APs reapply for accreditation every five years.
However, reaccreditation is about more than maintaining AP status. The application process itself enhances an organization’s capacity for continuous improvement.
In steps mirroring those followed in the original application, the IACET Commission will again review an organization’s policies and processes to verify compliance with the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training.
Accredited APs benefit from a comprehensive CE/T audit by a commission of experts. The rigorous application process and thorough on-site review will bring the latest best practices in CE/T to your organization—practices that have evolved in the five years since your original accreditation.
IACET will send an electronic reaccreditation notification letter approximately 18 months, 12 months, six months then three months prior to the organization’s AP expiration date. In order for the IACET Commission to process the application before the accreditation lapses, the applicant must obtain and complete the AP application and submit it to IACET at least 90 days prior to the AP expiration date. Failure to submit your application within that time will result in the removal of your organization from the IACET AP directory and your discontinued authorization to issue IACET CEUs.
Step 1: Purchase and download the new ANSI/IACET Standard and application
Step 2: Take advantage of the many resources available to help you prepare a successful application:
Step 3: Conduct an audit to assess your program and ensure you have the necessary policies, processes, and record-keeping in place for a successful program and the efficient renewal of your AP accreditation.
Step 4: Complete and submit the application at least 90 days prior to your expiration date to allow IACET to process your renewal application without a lapse in your AP accreditation.
The IACET Standard and AP Application package costs $450. At the time of submission, applicants are required to submit a non-refundable fee of $2,500 that covers an application review, one review of additional submitted information if requested by the Commission, administrative costs, site visit expenses* and Commission honoraria. The first year annual fees of $835 will be invoiced following the approval of AP reaccreditation.
* Applicants outside of the continental United States may be subject to additional site visit fees.
