Continuing Education Unit

The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) was designed to recognize and record individual and institutional participation in non-traditional studies and special activities. The CEU meets the need in adult and continuing education for uniformity in the planning of educational experiences for technical and professional people to improve their competency and skill levels through staff development.

The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of individuals who have completed one or more non-credit educational experiences. One CEU is defined as 10 contact hours (1 hour = 60 minutes) of participation in a continuing education course. A CEU is a unit of credit earned by participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice various professions.
