The IACET CET Connection now available as an iPhone app
from IACET
IACET understands the need to deliver timely, relevant industry news to its members and other CET professionals. In partnering with MultiBriefs to create the IACET CET Connection, the association committed itself to delivering this news to members and other CET professionals. That partnership has now expanded to provide another convenient avenue to receive this information. The IACET CET Connection is now part of the new MultiBriefs app, now available for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch in the App Store.

Simply search "MultiBriefs" in the App Store and download the app free of charge. Once the MultiBriefs application is downloaded, you can add the IACET feed from the "Business Management" section. News is streamed into your iPhone or iPod Touch each week. And just like the e-mail news brief you've become accustomed to, you may share articles with your colleagues via e-mail, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. You can even bookmark certain articles as favorites to revisit at a later date. As always, feedback is appreciated and is important to the success of the app. Feel free to rate the application in the App Store. More

ICSD Tip of the Week: Learning Objectives vs. Learning Outcomes
from Alan Hoover, IACET Council on Standards Development (ICSD) Member
Recently, a member asked, "what is the difference between a learning objective and an outcome, and can these two terms be used interchangeably?"

Maryland's proposed legislation for personal trainers includes IACET
from Delegate Costa
Recently, the state of Maryland proposed legislation to license personal trainers. The bill requires applicants to hold a current personal trainer certificate from a program that has been approved by the American Council on Education and IACET or the National Organization for Competency Assurance. Maryland is one of a growing number of states that is considering licensing for personal fitness trainers in the past couple of years. While IACET retains a neutral position on licensing, we applaud the fact that Maryland recognizes the importance of identifying the standards for measuring the quality of continuing education. More

Fewer businesses willing to subsidize employees' educations
from The Austin Business Journal
Blanca Lesmes has a unique appreciation for a decline in employer-based tuition assistance for executive education.
