"Associations play a vital role in connecting people, providing information, advancing members’ careers, and furthering their industries or professions. As technological, social, and economic shifts change how people work and engage with each other, associations have to find new ways to connect with future and potential members."

While IACET is a Standards Developing Organization (SDO) and Accrediting Body, and not necessarily a traditional a membership association, it does provide some similiar services to its stakeholders through individual and corporate affiliateships. IACET still must understand the disruptions that happen in the Continuing Education and Training (CE/T) industry so that it can provide the appropriate resources to its constituents; resources that assist CE/T providers in maintaining and growing their programs.

IACET has recently modified it services and benefits to add additional value to Accredited Providers, Individual Affiliates, and Corporate Affiliates.  These changes increase opportunity for engagement and provide business development opportunities with industry stakeholders.

Three ways to engage with IACET:

  1. Individual Affiliates – come join a network of CE/T Professionals like yourself! Engage, collaborate, and convene!
  2. Corporate Affiliate – become a part of the IACET support by aligning products with our Standards. Take your place in front of our Accredited Providers to offer solutions that support and enhance their CE/T programs.
  3. Accredited Provider – is your continuing education and training program/department IACET accredited? Visit our website or call us today to find out how the IACET Accreditation can enhance your training program and provide you with a framework for development, implementation, and delivery that gives you a significant competitive edge!
