Accreditation Workshops

There’s always something going on at IACET to help continuing education and training (CE/T) providers grow their capabilities. Through intensive, in-person workshops offered at numerous geographic locations and through online virtual attendance, IACET helps current and aspiring Accredited Providers incorporate quality, credibility and excellence into their continuing education and training programs.

The instructor-led workshop is an interactive and collaborative event where you will be able to assemble and validate your application submission evidence.

The workshop will be an interactive event that has the following learning outcomes:

  1. Identify the types of documents required by each element in the application and reapplication.
  2. Create and/or modify internal policies and procedures that are compliant with the ANSI/ IACET Standard and required as evidence in the (re)application.
  3. Create a plan to ensure Standard compliance throughout their organizations.
  4. Describe and practice the steps needed for sound Instructional Design

The agenda for the day includes many opportunities to work in small groups to identify which documents are expected for each element.  In those small groups learners have the opportunity to draft process documents that will be evaluated for compliance with the IACET standard.

I want to take the time to commend you and Lori on the excellent job you did conducting the workshop yesterday. Facilitating a distance program with a live group in attendance at the same time, is never easy…and you made it flow so smoothly. Your content and information was “spot on”. While there are no “correct answers” the advice and direction both you and Lori provided aligned with the intent of the Council in developing the Standard and Application. Attending it from a participant point of view made me a better Commissioner, by allowing me to better understand the perspectives of a very wide group of applicants and potential applicants.  I now look even more forward to reviewing and Site Visiting the applications/reapplications of participants you have trained.” 

IACET Commissioner Stuart Karasik
