Organizations that meet the International Association of Continuing Education Training’s internationally recognized continuing education and training standards are approved as Authorized Providers. The Michigan Municipal League is an authorized provider and may award IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Many organizations offer some form of continuing education credit, but only the IACET CEU is held to the strict, research-based IACET Criteria and Guidelines for Continuing Education and Training. Only IACET Authorized Providers, who undergo a strict evaluation by continuing education peers, can award the IACET CEU. IACET Authorized Providers are required to re-apply and be reauthorized every five (5) years.
IACET Authorized Provider Status Means the Organization:
- Demonstrates compliance with proven, research-based criteria created in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education
- Is dedicated to high standards for quality in continuing education and training
- Awards the IACET CEU, the hallmark for quality in continuing education and training
- There are some organizations, universities and state boards that recognize and accept the CEUs for a specific credential or license. The list can be found at http://www.iacet.org/resources/accept_ceu.htm. If your college or university is not listed here check with your registrar to find out if you can convert CEU’s to college credits.
