As IACET’s accreditation grows in relevance and recognition throughout the continuing education and training (CE/T) community, IACET has taken steps to ensure consistent record keeping and reporting to organizations who value its accreditation.  Many regulatory groups recognize IACET accreditation and depend on it to uphold quality CE/T standards.  It is, therefore, important to maintain a consistent accreditation status.

Beginning March 1, 2017:

  • any Accredited Provider that allows their IACET annual membership to expire will have their membership and associated accreditation suspended.
  • any Accredited Provider in their 5th year of the accreditation cycle who does not submit the reaccreditation application within 90 days prior to the expiration date will have their membership and associated accreditation suspended.

Note: Extensions for accreditation are available in limited cases for providers that need extra time to file their documentation.  Providers who have submitted the re-accreditation application by the appropriate date will have their accreditation maintained, even though the re-accreditation process may take additional time past the original due date.

Providers who allow their accreditation or membership to lapse will forfeit member benefits including: the provider’s listing in the accredited provider directory, the ability to grant CEUs, use of the IACET logo, valid accredited online certificate status, discounts on events and more.    

IACET will provide three different email notices to primary, secondary, and billing contacts associated with the organization at 90, 45 and 15 days prior to expiration with instructions on how to reaccredit and/or renew.

Once the provider’s accreditation or membership has been suspended, the provider may pay all applicable dues to have membership and accreditation re-initiated for a fee of $100.  If IACET has not received payment within 30 days after expiration or received notice of extenuating circumstances, membership and accreditation will be revoked and the organization must file a request to to have it reinstated.  Organizations that desire to be reinstated may have to reaccredit or pay all fees depending on the time that lapsed.

If any provider has questions please feel free to contact our office for a prompt response.
