What is a Continuing Education Unit (CEU)?

  • The CEU is accepted nationally as the unit for measuring participation in non-credit continuing education programs. The national definition of 1.0 CEU is, “Ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.”
  • CEUs serve as a documented way to verify educational attainments for non-academic credit. They help you reach your necessary requirements for re-certification in your chosen occupation. Many individuals are required by employers to continued educational pursuits through the accumulation of CEU credit.
  • CEUs may be applied toward teacher licensure renewal as professional development activity points. They may also be used as “Professional Studies” CEUs for ACSI Certification.
  • CEUs are a recognized path for upgrading your professional skills as well as personal enhancement.
