What is CEU? CEU is a continuing education unit. One CEU is defined as 10 contact hours of participation in an organized education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction.

Each contact hour of participation consists of 50 minutes’ work and 10 minutes of break. CEUs providers offer the course (a seminar, conference, or workshop) and ensure the quality of the course provided. They issue a certificate to the attendees. The certificate consists of the name of attendee, the number of CEUs awarded, and the name of the organization awarding the CEUs. It is the individual’s responsibility to keep and present the certificate to whatever organization requires the certificate. CEU providers keep a record of the CEUs in case the attendees need verification later.
