Continuing Education

What is a CEU?

The CEU is a standard of measure of continuing education or training. The criterion was developed by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). IACET defines the CEU “as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.” In other words, one CEU equals 10 hours of instruction included in a specified continuing education program or activity.
