IACET - International Association for Continuing Education and Training
IACET stands for International Association for Continuing Education and Training. They issue standards for educational entities that award CEUs (Continuing Education Units). You can view more information about these standards on the IACET website.
The CDA Council strongly recommends that all CDA renewal training be taken from agencies or organizations that meet the criteria for offering the IACET CEU. ClassesOnline4U has been accredited as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1760 Old Meadow Road, Suite 500, McLean, VA 22102. In obtaining this approval, ClassesOnline4U has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard which is widely recognized as the Standard of good practice internationally. As a result of their Authorized Provider accreditation status, ClassesOnline4U is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standard. All of our certificates include the IACET logo and list the number of CEUs awarded for that class.
CEU - Continuing Education Units
The CEU is equivalent to 10 clock hours of training (1 CEU = 10 clock hours). Many of our classes are a single clock hour and are therefore worth 1/10th (.1) of a CEU. Courses or longer classes would of course be worth more, e.g. the 20 Hour Basic class we offer is worth 2 CEUs.
CDA Required Training
Your CDA training can be taken over a 3-5 year period for both the CDA or CDA Renewal, so you may spread your training classes out over that time period. Our classes remain available to you for at least 7 years after you order them, so you can order a class and take it whenever you wish. We also keep a record of all your trainings which you can print out along with your certificates at any time in the future. This allows you to order, take, and track your trainings with us at any time, and provides you with a readily accessible record of all of those trainings you take from ClassesOnline4U in one easy-to-find location.
