IACET is an internationally recognized organization for standards and authorization for continuing education and training. The organization's mission is to promote and enhance quality in continuing education and training through research, education, and standard setting. IACET is a nonprofit organization established by the national task force on continuing education commissioned by the Bureau of Education (now the Department of Education) in 1968.
Many organizations offer some form of continuing education credit, but only the IACET CEU is held to the strict, research-based IACET Criteria and Guidelines for Continuing Education and Training. Only IACET Authorized Providers, who undergo a strict evaluation by continuing education peers, can award the IACET CEU. IACET Authorized Providers are required to re-apply and be reauthorized every five (5) years.
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. Under IACET's care, the IACET CEU has evolved from a quantitative measure to a hallmark of quality training and instruction.
