PLTW is proud to partner with the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) to award IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Teachers can earn IACET CEUs when they complete PLTW Core Training, as well as select other PLTW professional development experiences.
One CEU is equal to 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience that has clear objectives to meet learner needs and assess outcomes. When you successfully complete PLTW Core Training, we’ll provide you with a transcript that includes the name of the course, the total number of professional development hours completed, and the total number of CEUs earned. You can view your CEUs at any time by visiting the Professional Development section of myPLTW and clicking on Transcript.
A wide range of organizations – including several states’ departments of education and school districts – recognize IACET CEUs as the official standard for continuing education and training, which allows teachers to use IACET CEUs toward licensure or certification renewal. The IACET website has a list of agencies that accept its accreditation. Teachers must confirm with their school/district administrator, state department of education, or other relevant organization whether IACET CEUs qualify as recognized CEUs based on specific state or local requirements.
