Students must complete the course within 12 months of registration date to obtain CEUs. Upon successful completion of this course, 3 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) will be awarded. It is the responsibility of each participant to obtain appropriate approvals for application of CEUs for professional credit. One CEU is equivalent to ten contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education/training experience under responsible, qualified direction and instruction (definition of the International Association for Continuing Education and Training-IACET). 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, the participant must attend all the hours required for that CEU value. Earned CEUs may be useful in maintaining certification or licensure. They may also document the participants’ 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 by the deadline specified for the program. Refunds will not be approved for participants who do not meet the attendance requirements. CEUs earned will be recorded on an official Cal Poly transcript, which must be ordered and paid for by the participant. An email notification will be sent to participants once CEUs have been recorded and transcripts can be ordered.
