|CEUs in Detail|
|Purpose of the CEU||· Provide a standard unit of measure|
· Quantify continuing adult education and training activities
· Accommodate for the diversity of providers, activities, and purposes in adult education.
|Definition||One CEU = ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience, under responsible, qualified direction and instruction.|
|Ownership||The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET®) is the caretaker of the CEU. IACET® assumes responsibility for refining and disseminating information about the CEU. Through its programs, publications, research, and technical assistance, the Association assists organizations in correctly utilizing the criteria.Only Authorized Providers may use the IACET® CEU logo. The traditional CEU is in the public domain and many organizations use the term, but may not be following the IACET® Criteria. Some consumers distrust the value of the CEU for this reason. Consumers trust the IACET® Authorized Provider’s use of the CEU because they know that they have been reviewed and site visited to become an Authorized Provider and that they must follow the IACET® CEU Criteria.|
|To ensure quality in continuing education and training programs and to increase the consumer’s confidence in those organizations, which adhere to the standards, IACET® established the Authorized Provider program. This program provides recognition for providers who would adhere to the criteria and are willing to have their programs assessed by the Authorized Providers Commission|
|IACET® CEU||To distinguish between the generic CEU and the CEU granted by IACET® Authorized Providers, the Association restricts the use of its IACET® CEU logos to providers, which are certified as “Authorized Providers” by IACET®.|
