The Continuing Education Unit (CEU)
The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA) and The International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET)
The Center for Professional Advancement has been approved as an Authorized Provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). In obtaining this approval, The Center for Professional Advancement has demonstrated that it complies with the ANSI/IACET Standards which are widely recognized as standards of good practice internationally. As a result of their Authorized Provider membership status, The Center for Professional Advancement is authorized to offer IACET CEUs for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standards.
According to the Associations Criteria and Guidelines, IACET maintains a unique and highly respected position in the field of continuing education and training. Its broad membership base contains a wealth of ideas and experience that cannot be found in any one profession. The Associations activities in identifying and disseminating effective teaching and learning practices for adults have led to the wide scale adoption of the CEU, principles of good practice, assessment and evaluation methods. Many professions, associations, and licensing boards utilize these criteria and principles to review and enhance their professional development programs.
According to the Associations Publication, The Continuing Education Unit Criteria and Guidelines (Third Edition, 1986, page 3), the two most common uses of a CEU are: 1. to supply an employer or prospective employer with information on continuing education and training experiences pertinent to an occupational competence, and 2. to provide documentation to registration boards, certification bodies, or professional and occupational societies of continuing education undertaken to maintain or increase professional competence..."
CfPA awards CEU for participation in most courses. This is based upon ten classroom contact hours per unit. Upon completion of the course, each participant will be presented with a certificate on which CEU are printed as a permanent record.
