The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized uniform unit of measurement to record individual participation in non-credit academic, professional development educational and training programs. It is based upon attendance in non-degree non-credit academic classes of continuing professional education programs sponsored by organizations following the guidelines established by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET).
The hour equivalency for reporting education and training to professional and state licensing organizations is: ten (10) hours of instruction = 1.0 CEU or one (1) hour of instruction = 0.1 CEU.
The primary purpose of the CEU is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed significant non-credit educational and career enhancement experiences. The CEU is also used for licensed professionals such as nurses, engineers, fiduciaries, social workers, etc., who are required to submit proof of continuing education and professional development activity in order to maintain their license.
For organizations to award CEUs, they must follow the criteria and guidelines set forth by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), 1620 I Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006
