Reaccreditation Process

Why Reaccredit?

To ensure that your organization continues to meet quality continuous education and training practices, IACET requires that APs reapply for accreditation every five years. IACET aims to ensure that all APs remain current and consistent with the most correct version of the ANSI/IACET Standards.

However, reaccreditation is about more than maintaining AP status. The application process itself enhances an organization’s capacity for continuous improvement.

IACET Accredited Provider (AP) accreditation brings with it many benefits, including:

  • The ability to issue IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
  • Credibility and a competitive edge in the marketplace
  • Membership in a select community of organizations that share a commitment to rigor, excellence and integrity in continuing education and training (CE/T).

Current, Comprehensive, Complete

In steps mirroring those followed in the original application, the IACET Commission will again review an organization’s policies and processes to verify compliance with the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training.

Accredited Providers benefit from a comprehensive CE/T audit. The rigorous application process and thorough accreditation interview will bring the latest best practices in continuing education and training to your organization—practices that have evolved in the five years since your initial accreditation.

What Happens When You’re Up for Renewal

IACET will send an electronic reaccreditation notification letter approximately 18 months, 12 months, six months, and three months prior to the organization’s accreditation expiration date. In order for the IACET Commission to process the application before the accreditation lapses, the applicant must obtain and complete the reaccreditation application and submit it to IACET at least 90 days prior to the accreditation expiration dateFailure to submit your application within that time will result in the removal of your organization from the IACET AP directory and your discontinued authorization to issue IACET CEUs.
