ANSI/IACET Standard

IACET standard

The ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training defines a proven model for developing effective and valuable continuing education and training (CE/T) programs.

Because the ANSI/IACET Standard focuses on how continuing education and training programs are developed, not what they cover, it provides a framework of best practices that can be applied across disciplines and industries.

What Does the Standard Measure?

The ANSI/IACET Standard measures all aspects of a CE/T provider’s program development across ten nationally recognized categories:

  • Continuing Education and Training Organization
  • Responsibility and Control
  • Learning Environment and Support Systems
  • Learning Event Planning
  • Learning Outcomes
  • Planning and Instructional Personnel
  • Content and Instructional Methods
  • Assessment of Learning Outcomes
  • Awarding CEUs and Maintaining Learner Records
  • Program Evaluation

The standard categories, as illustrated in the model below, provide organizations with the framework to adhere to quality continuing education and training practices.

Quality Learning Process 2013

A systematic approach to identifying and analyzing learning needs, the ANSI/IACET Standard helps CE/T providers:

  • Establish an appropriate responsibility and control system
  • Encourage an analytic approach to identifying and analyzing learning needs
  • Design, plan and execute a quality learning event
  • Establish appropriate assessment criteria based on the learning outcomes
  • Monitor and improve the learning process in order to achieve its objectives

The ANSI/IACET Standard also emphasizes the importance of continually reviewing and improving education and training, to ensure the development of quality programs that meet consumer needs.

How the ANSI/IACET Standard Relates to the ADDIE Model

Why the Standard Matters

Within a competitive marketplace, it pays to align your organization and its CE/T programs with the name synonymous for quality in continuing education. The ANSI/IACET Standard is recognized as the official standard for CE/T, with a corresponding reputation for excellence.

This reputation extends to IACET Authorized Providers. Only IACET APs can offer IACET CEUs. And only IACET CEUs communicate to employers, licensing authorities, certification bodies and others that a CE/T program meets the highest standards.
