Why is COBBLESTONE accredited by IACET?

  • Courses that are developed with specific learning objectives in mind.
  • Instructors who are experts with practical working knowledge of the topics.
  • A Learner assessment is given at the end of each course to test the knowledge learned.

What is a CEU?

The creation of the Continuing Education Unit, or CEU, occurred in 1970 after IACET and the U.S. Department of Education task force studied the measurement of non-credit continuing education activities. The CEU was designed to:

  • Provide a standard unit of measurement for continuing education and training
  • Quantify continuing education and training activities
  • Accommodate for the diversity of providers, activities, and purposes in adult education

What is the benefit of earning Continuing Education Units?

The primary purpose of the Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences.

While the term “CEU” is used widely by education-related organizations, not all organizations have an equal commitment to quality in awarding CEUs. The IACET CEU ensures that a standard of learning is in place. It demonstrates that a program pays attention to elements like developing clear learning outcomes, assessing learner needs, and conducting thorough evaluation to ensure continuous improvement. The IACET Commission only allows approved Accredited Providers to award IACET CEUs.
