The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded reaccreditation status to Urban Engineers, Inc. (Urban). IACET Authorized Providers are the only organizations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation period extends for five years.
“Urban is proud of our Training Institute programs, which educate approximately 600 participants each year on important engineering topics,” stated Carol Martsolf, PE, LEED®AP, Urban’s Manager of Training.
Urban’s Training Institute covers a variety of technical and professional development areas, including Stormwater Management, Ethics, Pedestrian Facility Design, Construction Management, Municipal Engineering, Scheduling, Cost Estimating, and many other topics. In 2010, Urban received the IACET Exemplar Award for Internal Training.
Martsolf added, “Our renewed partnership with IACET is a demonstration of our commitment to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our programs, and we are very pleased to join such a prestigious organization as well as an elite group of organizations that offer excellent continuing education and training programs.”
“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Urban as an Authorized Provider,” said Michael Todd Shinholster, President of IACET and Founder and Principal Consultant of Culture Bridge and a Lecturer of International Business at Kennesaw State University in Woodstock, GA. “Urban joins nearly 650 organizations around the globe that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”
In order to achieve Authorized Provider accreditation, Urban completed a rigorous application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs. Urban has pledged its continued compliance with the Standard, and is now authorized to use the IACET name and Authorized Provider logo on promotional course material. In addition, Urban is linked to the IACET web site and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.
