The IEEE Certificates Program adds value to your educational events so technical professionals can stay current in their fields. As an educational content provider, your organization can present IEEE Certificates that offer continuing education units (CEUs), professional development hours (PDHs), and/or certificates of completion.  IEEE will review the content and qualify your learning event ahead of time so attendees know your event aligns with the high standards of IEEE. 

All learning event topics must be within IEEE's fields of interest:

  • Engineering
  • Computer Sciences and Information Technology
  • Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Technical Communications
  • Education

How To Become an Approved IEEE Certificates Provider

External organizations interested in offering IEEE certificates at events that are not sponsored by IEEE should fill out the approved provider application first. You will be notified in two weeks if your organization is qualified to be a provider of IEEE certificates. If you are approved, you may submit unlimited applications for your events.  

IEEE OUs, Societies, Sections, and Chapters are also eligible to offer IEEE Certificates for qualified events and do not need to apply to become an approved provider. If you are an IEEE OU, Society, Section, or Chapter, please contact us at: eab-ceuadmin@ieee.org.

Pricing/Subscription Plan 

Your organization pays for each certificate issued to your participants regardless of the type of certificate or instructional hours. The certificates are emailed directly to the participants and require no additional work on your part.  An invoice will be sent after each event.

Companies that host larger or reoccurring learning events have the option of purchasing a subscription plan which offers discounted pricing. If your organization is interested in a subscription plan, please contact us at eab-ceuadmin@ieee.org for more information.
