Which event is right for me?

IACET offers several options of the Accreditation Workshop with different learning outcomes.  You can choose the best options for your organization.

  • If you need an introduction to what it takes to become an Accredited Provider and/or want to learn more about IACET, register for our monthly, free learning event: One-Hour Application Assistance Webinar.
  • If you need background information on the initial application or an overview of the reaccreditation process because you already have a sound background in instructional design and adult learning, register for this learning event: One-Day Introduction to IACET Accreditation Workshop.
  • If you need an overview of instructional design, an in-depth focus on the initial application, and an overview of the reaccreditation application, register for this learning event: Two-Day Introduction to IACET Accreditation Workshop. (Please be advised that adult learning is not covered in this workshop, and reaccreditation is only covered at a very high level.)
  • If you need an in-depth focus on the reaccreditation process only because you are already familiar with IACET, accreditation, instructional design and adult learning principles, register for this learning event: Half-Day Reaccreditation Readiness Workshop. There will be a discussion on annual reporting, and a review the 2018 Standard and the application for reaccreditation.
  • If you need an in-depth focus on adult learning and instructional design only, register for this learning event: Two-Day Train the Trainer:  A Practical Approach to Training Adults. (Please be advised that the 2018 Standard and application are not covered. The content, however, does align with the Standard’s language and concepts.)
  • If you need an in-depth focus on the design document and writing policies and processes only, register for this learning event: One-Day Documentation Preparation for Accreditation Workshop. (Please be advised that The Standard is not covered in detail, but categories are referenced and used in the activities. It is highly recommended that participants take at least the One-Day Accreditation Workshop first).

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.”

I would highly recommend this workshop to those engaging in accreditation or re-accreditation.

Very impressive workshop and interaction with the class and remote participants. Thank you IACET!

Overall, one of the best training sessions I have attended in years. My virtual experience was excellent, and I don't feel I missed out on anything from the classroom experience. Great facilitation!
