SAE's Professional Development department is recognized as an Authorized Provider of Continuing Education Units by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). All SAE Professional Development seminars, e-Seminars, webinars, and engineering academies meet eligibility requirements for IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs) according to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard. To receive CEUs, attendees are required to be engaged in the entire class and demonstrate mastery of the learning objectives by successfully completing a knowledge assessment.

Many organizations offer some form of continuing education credit, but only the IACET CEU is held to the strict, research-based IACET Criteria and Guidelines for Continuing Education and Training. Only IACET Authorized Providers, who undergo a strict application and site-review process, can award the IACET CEU. IACET Authorized Providers are required to re-apply and be reauthorized every five (5) years.

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) was created by IACET as a measurement of continuing education. One (1) IACET CEU is equal to ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction. Under IACET's care, the IACET CEU has evolved from a quantitative measure to a hallmark of quality training and instruction. For more information on IACET, visit
