*CEUs earned are subject to individual CEU provider guidelines. Continuing education may be a requirement for maintenance of professional licensure, professional credentials or certification, or employment. The standard measure of continuing education is the CEU. One CEU is the equivalent of 10 hours of instruction. The minimum measure generally recognized is 0.1 CEU (one hour of instruction), and hours of education are rounded to the nearest tenth of a CEU.
