Project Intent

Revise Current ANS

Supersedes or Affects

ANSI/IACET 2018-1 Standard for Continuing Education and Training

Abstract of Project

The standard provides a framework of continuous improvement to developers of adult non-credit continuing education events. The standard provides guidance for organizations designing, developing and delivering continuing education and training (CE/T) programs and is intended for organizations who want to demonstrate: (1) Their learning events meet the requirements and rigor of an internationally recognized standard; (2) Their commitment to educational rigor, excellence and integrity, and; (3) A learner completing their program has completed a quality training program that adheres to an internationally recognized standard.

Project Need

The current standard is being revised to:

  1. Update formatting: The new format is intended to allow stakeholders to use the standard as an organizational development resource regardless of intent to become an IACET accredited provider.
  2. Incorporate stakeholder feedback: Stakeholder feedback related to relevancy, timeliness, and best practices in continuing education and training programs has been considered.


IACET Accredited Providers, continuing education and training (CE/T) program providers, continuing education and training (CE/T) program consumers, employers, government agencies, credentialing associations, licensing bodies and others who rely on a skilled workforce.
