Students must complete the course within 12 months of registration date to obtain CEUs. Upon successful completion of this course, 4 CEUs will be awarded. It is the responsibility of each participant to obtain appropriate approvals for application of CEUs for professional credit.
One CEU = 10 contact hours of participation in organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training – IACET)
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are based on the number of sixty-minute contact hours for a course or program. (Example: If a course or program meets ten contact hours, one CEU will be awarded.) To receive CEUs, a participant must be present for the entire course or program.
Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document continuing professional education for an employer, association, or credentialing agency. Cal Poly Extended Education maintains a record of the CEUs participants have earned through programs and courses approved for CEUs.
CEUs are for non-credit courses or programs. They cannot be converted to quarter or semester hour credit and they cannot be applied to degree programs.
CEUs will not be awarded retroactively. Registration for CEUs must occur at the time of the program.
