Biographical History

The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) is a credentialing body which authorizes education providers that meet strict continuing education guidelines. The organization grew out of a National Task Force on continuing education commissioned by the Bureau of Education (now the Department of Education) in 1968, known as the Council on the Continuing Education Unit (CCEU). The task force, which included representatives from numerous professions with a vested interest in the continuing education of their members, established guidelines for continuing education and created the Continuing Education Unit (CEU), a standard unit of measurement for continuing education activities. IACET, the successor organization to the CCEU, was created in 1990 to provide both a forum for discussion of education standards and an organizational body to promote quality standards.
