  • What is a CEU?

    The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized uniform unit of measurement of individual participation in non-credit continuing education. One Continuing Education Unit is defined as "ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience, under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction." CEUs provide the framework for individuals to document their efforts to update or broaden their knowledge or skills through a variety of non-credit educational options. CEUs are granted for classroom hours and are not granted for hours spent at such activities as performances, field trips or tours.
