Professional Development Information

Accredited_ProviderThe Ohio Head Start Association Inc. (OHSAI) is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).  OHSAI complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As a result of this accreditation, OHSAI is authorized to issue the IACET CEU.

CEUs are offered for OHSAI professional development content that meets eligibility requirements for IACET CEUs according to the ANSI/IACET  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 Accredited Providers, who undergo a strict application and site-review process, can award the IACET CEU. IACET Accredited 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.
