Employers are given the assurance that the programs attended by their employee are of high standards, brought about by the stringent procedures implemented on the design, development, delivery, monitoring and control of the training program. The ANSI/IACET CEU is accepted worldwide. The employee's achievement of the learning objectives is also measured not only by his attendance but also through assessment such as tests and application - based activity during the program.
