The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded Toshiba International Corporation authorized provider status. Authorized providers are organizations approved to offer IACET continuing education units (CEUs). The recognition period extends for five years and includes all programs offered or created during that time.
“Toshiba is proud of our education programs which train our customers each year on important technical skills so that we and our customers stay on the cutting edge,” said Cheryl Johnson, Toshiba International Corporation’s training coordinator. “Our new relationship 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.”
In order to achieve authorized provider status, Toshiba completed an application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and demonstrated adherence to the standard addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs. The company said it will continue to comply with the standard, and is now authorized to use the IACET name and authorized provider logo on promotional course material. Toshiba is also linked now to the IACET website.
Toshiba has received CEU credit approval for three classes. The approved classes and respective credits are:
- 1.8 CEU for HVAC Startup Certification, a three day class;
- 0.2 CEU for Introduction to the Toshiba P9 & VLP Technology, a two and a half hour seminar; and
- 0.6 CEU for P9 Startup Programming, a six hour seminar.
Toshiba plans to offer CEUs for additional classes such as Basic Motor & Drives, G9/H9 Basics, and G9000.
