Carol Martsolf, PE, LEED® AP, Manager of Training for Urban Engineers, was recently re-elected to a second two-year term as a member of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training Council (IACET) on Standards Development (ICSD).
The ICSD is responsible for the development, maintenance, and dissemination of evidence-based standards that promote and enhance quality continuing education and training (CE/T).
IACET was recognized as an American National Standards Institute-Accredited standards developing organization (SDO) in 2006. As an SDO, IACET’s ICSD provides a method to assure that suggestions for improvement, questions from users of the standard, or requests for interpretations of the standard are handled in a fair and consistent manner. Suggestions for improvement or questions concerning the standard are reviewed by the ICSD.
Martsolf joins 11 other members from Florida, California, New York, Georgia, North Carolina, and Canada, all of whom are recognized professionals in the field of CE/T and have extensive experience in adult education. The process for election is competitive, and Martolf’s election to the board demonstrates her expertise and skills in CE/T. She represents the for-profit category of membership.
“IACET is extremely happy to have Carol be reappointed to serve a two-year term on the ICSD,” Sara Meier, CAE, Executive Director of IACET said. “She brings a wealth of experience to the Council from her expertise as a training professional, role with Urban Engineers as an award-winning Authorized Provider, and commitment to the association as a volunteer. She has been an invaluable member of the Council over the past few years as IACET embarked on the standard revision process and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with her.”
Martsolf manages the Urban Training Institute, a division of Urban Engineers which provides courses to earn professional development hours. An IACET-authorized provider since 2008, the Training Institute has awarded over 8,000 professional development hours during that time.
