IACET – Accredited Provider Renewal (03/01/2018 to 02/28/2023)

6 - The Re-Application
This document provides the official requirements and process for reaccreditation of IACET Accredited Providers
(APs).

Initial accreditation demonstrated that the Accredited Provider has the capabilities and organizational
structure to provide quality continuing education. Reaccreditation focuses on capabilities and performance, as
well as on continuous quality improvement.

The reaccreditation requirements have been designed to assess the AP's changes since the last
accreditation and the AP's continued 1-BSR/IACET 1 -201X Standard compliance. Reaccreditation, therefore,
moves away from simply the APs demonstration of the required capabilities and instead focuses on the use of
those capabilities, accountability and continuous quality improvement.

The requirements and process for reaccreditation are designed so that APs can continue to evolve, improve,
and advance; thereby becoming increasingly effective at improving the continuing education for the
populations they serve.

Reaccreditation continues to address the IACET 2018 Standard and its requirements. The
BSR/IACET 1 -201X Standard is the same for both initial and reaccreditation. Only the application is different.
The documentation required for evidence and demonstration, however, have been revised for reaccreditation
and may be different from the initial application. There are categories/elements
that require clarification/additional information included in the reaccreditation, such as: staff and
organization changes over the past five (5) years; advancements/changes that have taken place
since the last application; and new programs and activities.

Reaccreditation is based on a modified self-study model. That is, reaccreditation provides an


opportunity for the AP to determine and describe the extent to which they meet the requirements of the
Standard and how they plan to advance in the areas addressed in their last accreditation.
Commissioners will also review the self -audit checklists and annual reports submitted during the
previous five (5) years. This set of requirements will enable the Commissioners to understand how
the AP operates and functions in addition to the review of specific examples and document
