Earn continuing education units when attending Doble seminars and conferences.
What are Continuing Education Units (CEUs)?
One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as ten hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.
Continuing Education Units provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed one or more significant non-credit educational experiences. Awarding the IACET CEUs also provides a quality indicator for your continuing education and training programs because it means you have been reviewed and approved for complying with internationally recognized standards. CEUs are issued at all Doble Seminars and Conferences that meet the IACET standards.
What is the InternationaI Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET)?
IACET has developed standards for continuing education and training for almost 40 years and is known as the premier standard-setting organization for continuing education and training providers. In 2007, IACET was approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a Standards Developer. What was formerly IACET Criteria & Guidelines are now ANSI/IACET Standards. This gives IACET Authorized Providers (APs) a considerable advantage over their non-authorized competitors.

Where are CEUs Accepted?
Continuing Education Units are widely accepted by colleges and educational institutions as official credits towards professional licensing requirements and degree programs. As the organization's name implies, the CEUs can be offered for classes held anywhere in the world, provided the event meets IACET criteria.

How are CEUs Calculated?
One IACET CEU is awarded for each ten clock hours (sixty-minutes=one clock hour) of instruction hours involved in the program. Instructional hours do not include time involved in coffee breaks, meals, social activities or business and committee meetings.
What are Learning Outcomes?
A Learning Outcome is a clear statement of behaviors expected of an attendee as a result of a learning experience.
Doble will notify participants of the expected Learning Outcomes for an event via email, written documents or posting this information on the Doble web site. All event attendees are eligible to obtain IACET CEUs for any qualifying class they attend. For each event that is offering CEUs, the monitoring standards for the event will be defined and determined when the event is reviewed by Doble. Participants of every event will be reminded of how to receive the CEUs on-site at the event.
How do I know if the Learning Outcomes are met?
In order to meet learning outcomes and earn CEUs for a seminar, participants must meet the following requirements:
- Attendance for the complete class-time
- Successful completion of the learning assessment meeting the required minimum accuracy of 70%
- Completion of a class evaluation
All participants wishing to earn IACET CEUs must meet all three of the above criteria. Each participant who completes the learning assessment will be notified by e-mail as to whether he or she passed the assessment and the total number of CEUs earned. Participants who do not pass the assessment will have the opportunity to re-test within two weeks of the Pass/Fail notification.
How can I obtain a record of my received Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Doble?
All event participants can obtain their CEU records by contacting [email protected].
Doble will retain records of attendance at CEU events electronically indefinitely. This information will only be released to the attendee themselves or at the request of their company. In order to obtain a copy of your transcript participants must submit a written request in order to obtain their records (email is acceptable). Request will NOT be taken over the phone.
