Quick Guide to the IACET Accreditation process

Examine IACET's eligibility requirements and application process. Download the Authorized Provider Self-Assessment Checklist and Free Accreditation Guide. The checklist is designed to make sure your organization is ready to submit an application by going through a checklist intended to identify any gaps in policies, processes or evidence that must be addressed before an application is submitted. The guide will give you information on IACET, the importance of the IACET CEU, what to expect from the Standard and AP Application, as well as the process, price, and timeline on becoming accredited as an IACET Accredited Provider.

Purchase and download the ANSI/IACET Standard and Application (Prospective AP only), $450.  Note: Providers seeking reaccreditation should purchase the Standard and Reaccreditation in the online application system. You’ll need to ensure the name of your organization is listed when purchasing the application. Once the Standard is purchased, the prospective provider is allowed two years to apply for accreditation.  During this two year cycle, IACET will be communicating with different events and resources that can help your organization achieve accreditation.  You will also have access to the online application for accreditation. 

IACET's application for accreditation is now 100% online.  You can take up to one year to complete and submit your application. Once you have compiled all of the evidence requested in the application you will be ready for the virtual review. Upon submission, a $3,900 non-refundable application review fee is due for the review process to begin.  Additionally, the applicant will remit the organization's first year's membership dues of $985.  The membership dues are refunded in the event the organization fails to achieve accreditation.

The virtual review consists of a team of IACET reviewers examining the application for compliance with the Standard.  IACET's review is an iterative process which means it may more than one review round to document compliance.  The provider will be kept updated on the status of their review in the online system. Expenses for the review process are covered by the application fee made at the time of submission. Providers based outside the lower 48 United States may be subject to slightly higher fees to cover the higher costs of travel.

IACET verifies a number of factors that can only be achieved with a site review even for virtual organizations. Site visits take approximately a half day.  IACET reviewers will  document that the Standard is being followed by the organization and that the attestations in the application are accurate.

Once you have earned accreditation, your first years dues will be needed to finalize accreditation.  Annual membership dues are used to help IACET audit providers as needed, provide benefits to the community, and engage in meaningful research that promotes quality CE/T and sustains the Standard.

Enjoy accreditation in 5 year spans.  Reaccrediation documentation should be submitted to IACET 90 days before accreditation expires. The process of reaccreditation is very similar to the intitial process of accreditation.

About Accreditation

The ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training  is a universal model for learning process excellence. It defines a proven model for developing effective and valuable continuing education and training (CE/T) programs by measuring a CE/T provider's training program from procedure to process to result.

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

The ANSI/IACET Standard measures all aspects of a CE/T provider’s program development across ten nationally recognized categories.  This has allowed for the ANSI/IACET Standard to be recognized as the official standard for CE/T in the world.  Within the competitive marketplace, can you afford to not be recognized by a reputable organization certifying your commitment to high-quality, excellent education?
