The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded TPC Training Systems, a division of Telemedia, Inc. (TPC), the prestigious Authorized Provider status. IACET Authorized Providers are the only 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.
“TPC is proud of our education programs which have trained more than 3,500,000 maintenance and operations workers in important technical and safety skills.

In order to achieve Authorized Provider status, TPC completed a rigorous application process, including a review by an IACET site visitor, and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 1-2007 Standard addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs. TPC has pledged its continued compliance with the Standard, and is now authorized to use the IACET name and Authorized Provider logo on promotional course material. In addition, TPC is now linked to the IACET web site and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.
