The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) has awarded Diversity Training University International ( the prestigious Accredited Provider accreditation. Only approved IACET Accredited Providers organizations can offer IACET Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The accreditation period extends for five years and includes all programs DTUI provides and creates during that period.

Senior managing partner Billy Vaughn, Ph.D., stated that "cultural diversity leadership work is too volatile and critical to rely on bootstrap learning or simply passing a test. DTUI created the first diversity certification courses in 1998 in response to the growing need for diversity leaders trained to do the work and get results. That requires an excellent training program that meets professional standards. IACET accreditation demonstrates our commitment to high standards in training diversity leadership competence. We thank our staff, advisory board, and graduates for their efforts and support throughout the accreditation process."

To achieve Accredited Provider accreditation, DTUI completed a rigorous application process and successfully demonstrated adherence to the ANSI/IACET 2018-1 Standard for Continuing Education and Training by addressing the design, development, administration, and evaluation of its programs. DTUI pledges its continued compliance with the Standard now that it is authorized to use the IACET name and Accredited Provider logo on promotional course material. In addition, DTUI is currently listed on the IACET website and recognized as offering the highest quality continuing education and training programs.

DTUI currently offers diversity certification courses through our subsidiary Diversity Executive Leadership Academy. A partial list of our currently accredited courses includes:

  • Cultural Diversity Leadership Foundations
  • Training Design & Development 
  • Strategic Diversity & Inclusion Strategic Initiatives 
  • High-Impact Training Facilitation Skills
