ABB Robotics awarded IACET accreditation


Dec 02, 2015

ABB Robotics was awarded accreditation status for its robotics training courses by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). IACET Accredited Providers are the only organizations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

CEUs are nationally recognized by a wide range of organizations, including professional associations, regulatory boards, corporations and universities; CEUs can also be transferable college credits.

“ABB Robotics is proud of our education programs which train 3,000 manufacturing and industrial automation professionals each year in important robotic operation and programming disciplines,” said Christelle Keefer, director of training, ABB Robotics. “Our partnership with IACET is a demonstration of our commitment to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our programs, and we are honored to offer continuing education credits to our students across our entire training curriculum.”

ABB Robotics’ training curriculum covers a wide range of applications, including the following:

    • Material handling,
    • paint,
    • arc welding,
    • spot welding, and
    • laser cutting.

“We are pleased to establish a relationship with ABB Robotics as an Accredited Provider,” said Lori Schnaider, president of IACET.  “ABB joins nearly 600 organizations around the globe that have had their programs audited by third-party continuing education experts to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”

ABB Robotics completed an application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, to achieve its Accredited Provider accreditation. The organization successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2013 Standard addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs.

ABB Robotics has pledged its continued compliance with the Standard, and is now authorized to use the IACET name and Accredited Provider logo on promotional course material.
