Riverside Research Reaccredited as an Authorized Provider of IACET CEUs

Dayton, Ohio – The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) awarded reaccreditation status to Riverside Research, a nationally recognized leader in the development, presentation, and maintenance of DOD-approved training and education courses. IACET Authorized Providers are the only organizations approved to offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation period extends for five years, and includes all programs offered or created during that time.

“We are proud to have the IACET seal of approval on our unique education and training programs,” said Richard Annas, President of Riverside Research. “Each year, we educate hundreds of government, military, and commercial members of the Intelligence Community in technical and non-technical intelligence disciplines at all levels of classification.” Annas continued, “Our renewed acreditation with IACET is a demonstration of our commitment to lifelong learning and high standards for all of our programs. We are honored to continue our critical role as an IACET Authorized Provider of DOD-approved education and training programs on a national and international scale.”

“We are pleased to continue our relationship with Riverside Research as an Authorized Provider,” stated Michael Todd Shinholster, President of IACET and Founder and Principal Consultant of Culture Bridge and a Lecturer of International Business at Kennesaw State University in Woodstock, GA.  Shinholster added, “Riverside Research joins nearly 650 organizations around the globe that have had their programs vetted by third-party experts in continuing education to ensure the highest possible standards are met.”

All courses developed by Riverside Research, whether certificate- or degree-related, are built to the IACET standard. Subject areas include but are not limited to:

  • Intelligence Analyst Program
  • Intelligence Scientist Program
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
  • Cybersecurity

In order to achieve Authorized Provider accreditation, Riverside Research 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. Riverside Research 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, Riverside Research is now linked to the IACET web site and is recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.
