SAE Continuing Education and Training Programs Earn Esteemed Authorization Status

TROY, MI -, Jan. 14, 2004 - SAE is proud to announce that its professional development and engineering education programs have earned "Authorized Provider" status, as recognized by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).

This designation is awarded by the IACET Commission, a body that is widely respected in defining and maintaining specific guidelines for providing quality continuing education units (CEUs). IACET has conducted a strict and comprehensive evaluation of SAE's educational processes and programs. This analysis has concluded that SAE is in compliance with proven, research-based criteria created in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Education, and that SAE also demonstrates a strong dedication to high quality standards for continuing education and training.

As an Authorized Provider, SAE can now award the IACET CEU, regarded by many as the hallmark of quality in continuing education and training.

According to David Cameron, Chairperson of the SAE Continuing Professional Development Group, and Chief Technologist, By-Wire Chassis, General Motors Corporation, "The attainment of the IACET Authorized Provider status validates the long tradition of excellence that continuing education and training has had within SAE. This further recognizes SAE as a high quality, value-driven provider of technical educational products in this increasingly competitive environment."

SAE offers a variety of educational opportunities in several formats, including courses presented at the SAE Automotive Headquarters in Troy, Michigan.
