IACET Accreditation

The Society for Clinical Data Management is accredited by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). SCDM complies with the ANSI/IACET Standard, which is recognized internationally as a standard of excellence in instructional practices. As such, SCDM is authorized to issue IACET CEUs.


SCDM requires that at least 60 percent of CEUs come from Clinical Data Management (CDM) specific training.

Up to 40 percent of CEUs may come from non-CDM specific training. SCDM recommends that CEU applicants consider the CCDM Core Competencies when choosing any non-CDM specific training.

For examples of acceptable credits, please view the CEU percentage breakdown chart.

SCDM will accept CEU certificates for training completed within organizations that offer IACET CEUs. CEU certificates must be provided for each training course completed. SCDM issued CEUs are in our records and do not need to be submitted.

Certificates for CEUs from public/non-profit organizations (SoCRA, SCT, DIA, ACRP, Universities) as well as private organizations (Barnett, EDC and Beyond, etc), will be considered equally; however, internal company training is not applicable.

CEU certificates for training completed by organizations that do NOT offer IACET CEUs are accepted only when the applicant has submitted the Non-IACET CEU Affidavit Form to the SCDM Administrative Office and said provider is approved by SCDM.
