Continuing Education Units
The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a nationally recognized measure of participation in a continuing professional education program. Sixty minutes of CEU credit (0.1 CEU) is defined as "one contact hour of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction." For example, 1.0 CEU is the equivalent of 10 contact hours.
1.0 CEU=10 Contact Hours
