This self-assessment tool is intended to provide guidance on your organization's readiness to submit an application for the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) Authorized Provider (AP) accreditation.
The checklist is intended to identify any gaps in policies, processes or evidence that must be addressed before an Authorized Provider application is submitted. The checklist provides an overview of the 10 categories of the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard for Continuing Education and Training.
Applicants can apply for AP accreditation on behalf of an entire organization or for a specific unit or department within an organization. What matters: that the provider operates under a single set of policies and processes and possesses authority, responsibility and administrative control over the learning that is offered by the organization.
In the application, an applicant must clearly define the organizational unit that seeks AP accreditation. Larger entities, complex organizations and those with many geographic units might have several distinct CE/T providers. In these cases, each would need to apply separately to become an accredited IACET Authorized Provider of continuing education units (CEUs).
Because a site visit is a required part of the IACET AP application process, IACET Commission members need to be able to schedule the visit and get to the site. If an organization resides in a country with a current U.S. travel warning, IACET might not be able to accept the application. Since risks are continuously changing, please look at the most current Travel Warnings list before purchasing the ANSI/IACET Standard and Application. If you have additional questions, please contact IACET Headquarters.
