Training Center for industrial and systems engineers continues IACET accreditation
NORCROSS, Ga. - Aug. 2, 2021 - PRLog -- After months of preparing and undergoing a stringent application and review process of its continuing education programs provided by its worldwide Training Center, the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) has once again achieved IACET accreditation status. As of Sept. 1, 2021, the IISE Training Center officially continues its 15-year accreditation status for another five years through 2026.
First accredited in 2006, IISE is part of a "select community of organizations that share a commitment to rigor, excellence and integrity in continuing education and training," according to the International Accreditors for Continuing Education and Training website.
As emblazoned on its IACET Accredited Provider certificate, IISE "has complied with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices and is authorized to issue the IACET CEU."
IACET's Vanessa Almony sent a message to IISE's Director of Continuing Education and Program Development James R. Swisher, PE, PMP, stating: "On behalf of the IACET Accredited Provider Commission, I am pleased to inform you that Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers has been approved as an IACET Accredited Provider. IACET is the premier standards-setting organization for continuing education and training. Our strategic mission is to promote IACET standards as a benchmark for quality program delivery. IACET Accredited Providers are an elite group of educators dedicated to quality in continuing education and training. Consumers trust the IACET CEU because they know that the Accredited Providers' processes must follow the ANSI/IACET Standard for Continuing Education and Training and have been thoroughly assessed by a third party."
Swisher, who joined the IISE staff in the fall of 2020, says he did not go through the IACET-reaccreditation process alone. "I am thankful for the advice and assistance from my IISE predecessor, Larry Aft, as well as the rest of the IISE team." Aft continues as an instructor with the IISE Training Center and is the president of IISE Solutions.
"It was a team effort to achieve IACET reaccreditation,"
"Our students benefit from our accreditation status with the assurance that their investment in IISE continuing education has the backing of a 'universal model for learning process excellence.'"
