We are accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). We comply with the ANSI/IACET standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, we are authorized to issue IACET continuing education units (CEUs). To receive CEUs, attendees need to participate and complete all the activities and assignments for the courses they attend.

ASSP Course CEUs:

1/2-day course = 0.4 CEUs
1-day course = 0.7 CEUs
2-day course = 1.4 CEUs*
3-day course = 2.1 CEUs

*Prevention Through Design and Risk Assessment & Management for Safety Professionals are 2-day courses that receive 3.0 CEUs as part of the Risk Assessment and Management Certificate.

BCSP Recertification Points:

The CEUs awarded by ASSP are equivalent in value to Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) recertification points (e.g., 1.0 CEU = 1.0 recertification point).
