The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) developed the Guide to Accreditation for organizations who are interested in attaining IACET Accredited Provider (AP) status. It provides a general overview of the organization and AP program and also walks prospective applicants through the eligibility requirements and application and development process. The goal of IACET’s AP program is to provide an opportunity for organizations conducting continuing education and training to benchmark their current operations to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved IACET Continuing Education and Training Standard. IACET is responsible for the development, implementation and maintenance of the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training. IACET's mission is to promote and enhance quality in continuing education and training through research, education, and the development and continuous improvement of IACET criteria, principles, and standards.
