Knowledge for Accreditation and Program Assessment

Our events are an invaluable professional development resource. Deepen your understanding of the assessment of adult learning and the accreditation process. Build up your professional network and share your knowledge with experts in the ABET community.

Many of our events are eligible for Professional Development Hours (PDHs) toward professional licensing or certification.

If you reside outside the United States, we can provide documentation to assist with your visa application to attend one of our events in the U.S.
