Technology is evolving rapidly, and technical professionals need to keep their skills up-to-date in order to help their organizations stay competitive. Additionally, many engineers need continuing education units (CEUs) and professional development hours (PDHs) to maintain their engineering licenses. With many engineers seeking training programs that offer these credits, IEEE can help you provide these benefits to your professionals through the IEEE Certificates Program.

All applications for the IEEE Certificate Program are accepted online. Access the online application.

Why IEEE Certificates?

Certificates Program example

You already know that IEEE is an association that brings together some of the best and brightest minds in engineering today. IEEE Certificates guarantee that your education program offers some of the most relevant content that engineers need to stay ahead in their fields. IEEE will review the content of your learning event ahead of time so that attendees know that it aligns with the high standards of IEEE. An IEEE Certificate is a guarantee of educational quality and a credential that engineers can proudly share.

IEEE maintains an official registry of all certificates awarded. This makes accounting to state licensing boards an easier task for engineers. It also helps IEEE organizational units keep track of their participants.

For learning event organizers

IEEE Certificates Program adds value to your educational event and helps your program stand out from the competition. As an organization or educational content provider, you can provide IEEE Certificates that offer CEUs, PDHs, and Certificates of Completion at your next learning event or virtual conference. 

External organizations interested in offering IEEE certificates at events that are not sponsored by IEEE should fill out the approved provider application first. If you are approved, you may submit unlimited applications for your events.  

IEEE organizational units, 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.

The application process is online and easy to use. Pay per certificate or select from bulk discount pricing options for larger events. 

For individuals seeking CEU and PDH certificates

IEEE does not provide access to individual certificate purchase options. Instead, IEEE offers a variety of eLearning courses available for purchase. At the successful completion of the course, the student can access a certificate providing the CEUs or PDHs associated with that particular learning offering.

Information about the Electronics Packaging Society Certificate Program

In order to further the education of Electronics Packaging Society (EPS) members, the EPS is now offering a Certificate Program. The goal of the program is to give members new to electronics packaging an opportunity for further packaging education, to offer continuous education in electronics packaging to existing members, and to offer students electronics packaging training if they are in a University program that does not include packaging education.
