ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard for Continuing Education and Training

The standard provides a framework to assist organizations to adhere to quality continuing education and training practices. The framework includes the establishment of an appropriate responsibility and control system; the adoption of an analytic approach to establishing learning needs; a plan to establish and execute a quality learning event; the establishment of appropriate assessment criteria; and the need to monitor and improve the learning process to achieve desired learning outcomes. Applying a consistent, quality process provides a firm basis for assessing continuing education units and their application.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
