  •  In business for at least one year, operating under the conditions described in the application for at least three months

In addition, the applying organization must have:

Accreditation Readiness Calculator

IACET's Accreditation Readiness Calculator is intended to provide guidance on your organization's readiness to start the accreditation journey towards  becoming an IACET Accredited Provider (AP).

This tool is intended to identify any gaps in policies, processes or evidence that must be addressed before an application is submitted as well as gives advice on next steps based on the calculated score.

How Many Applications Do I Need to File?

The IACET Accreditation is an organizational accreditation and can be applied to a specific unit or department within an organization. In the application, the applicant must clearly define the organizational unit that seeks the accreditation.

There are instances where an organization has multiple brands they wish to accredit. The prospective provider must operate under a single set of policies and processes and possesses authority, responsibility and administrative control over the learning that is offered by the organization.

Larger entities, complex organizations and those with many geographic locations might have several distinct CE/T providers. In these cases, each would need to apply separately to become an accredited IACET Accredited Provider of continuing education units (CEUs).

The decision on the proper construct for larger entities, complex organizations, and organizations with multiple geographic locations is made on a case-by-case basis.

In-Person Accreditation Interviews

All accreditation interviews are conducted virtually. If an applicant is interested in an in-person accreditation interview, the cost must be incurred by the applicant.
