What is IACET?
IACET is a non-profit association dedicated to quality continuing education and training programs. IACET authorizes education providers that meet strict continuing education guidelines created in 1968.
What is an Authorized Provider?
Becoming an IACET Authorized Provider entails the completion of an extensive application, as well as a review by an IACET site visitor to ensure our training successfully demonstrates the ability to adhere to all IACET criteria and guidelines.
IACET standards enable continuing educators to deliver programs of the highest quality. Only Authorized Providers offer the IACET Continuing Education Unit (CEU). These CEUs reflect strong procedural standards and quality educational criterion.
IACET Authorized Providers are certified to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for all training programs that meet the IACET criteria.
What is a CEU?
ECS is authorized by IACET to offer CEUs for approved programs. The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) was created by IACET as a measurement of continuing education. One (1) IACET CEU is equal to ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.
How does one receive IACET CEUs from the ULC?
CEUs are assigned only to learning activities deemed qualified for accreditation by ECS. For courses with assigned CEUs, the number of units is identified on the certificate of completion. These learning activities include blended workshops (combination of online and face-to-face activities), self-paced online courses, and facilitated online activities.
