What is the IACET Continuing Education Unit (CEU)?
One IACET Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction.
What is the purpose of the IACET CEU?
The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit continuing education experiences. Awarding the IACET CEU also provides a quality indicator for your continuing education and training programs because it means that you have been reviewed and approved as complying with internationally recognized standards.
How is the IACET CEU awarded?
The IACET CEU may be awarded only by organizations that have been reviewed and approved as Accredited Providers. (The ANSI/IACET Standard and Accredited Provider application can be downloaded at www.iacet.org.) Note that awarding the IACET CEU requires that a record be established for each individual to whom CEUs are awarded and that a transcript of that record be made available to participants upon request.
Can IACET CEUs be awarded for partial credit?
No. A participant must successfully complete the entire event or program before any IACET CEUs can be offered.
How many IACET CEUs can be awarded for a learning activity?
One CEU is awarded for every 10 contact hours (60 minutes) of instruction in a planned learning activity. Instructional hours do not include time involved in coffee breaks, meals, social activities or business and committee meetings.
Who accepts IACET CEUs?
IACET is a well-known organization that is recognized as upholding standards of excellence when it comes to continuing education, and therefore many organizations will accept IACET CEUs. Specifically, IACET CEUs are accepted by many State Boards of Engineering along with other credentialing organizations. To check if an organization accepts the IACET CEU, please visit the directory at www.iacet.org.
What are the requirements to receive IACET CEUs?
All participants in AGC professional development programs must attend at least 95% of all classroom sessions, complete all assignments, participate in all learning activities, score at least 75% on all exams and complete a post-program evaluation. For courses that offer CEUs, a post-program email will be provided with instructions on how to complete the CEU process and print your certificate.

AGC retains attendee records for a period of seven (7) years. Please review our transcript policy for information on how to request your transcript.
