IACET developed the CEU in 1970 as a standard unit of measurement for quantifying CE/T activities (CE/T). One (1) IACET CEU equals 10 contact hours of participation in an organized CE/T experience delivered under responsible ownership capable direction, and qualified instruction. Not all CEUs are created equal! The term “CEU” is in the public domain and can be used by organizations that are not IACET Authorized Providers. IACET CEUs are recognized by learners, instructors, regulators and employers worldwide and can only be awarded by IACET Authorized Providers. This distinction assures employers, credentialing associations, licensing bodies and others that a learner has completed a quality program that meets the national standard for continuing education and training.
