A Continuing Education Unit. or CEU, is a unit of credit equal to sixty minutes of participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice various professions.
Certain professions require that practitioners earn a specific number of CEUs per year to ensure that they are up-to-date with current practices in their field. Proof of credits earned is necessary in order to renew a license or certification. The annual number of CEUs required varies by state and profession.
You may request partnership as far in advance as you like. We require that your organization reaches out to Behavioral Health no later than 30 business days from the proposed event date in order for us to provide Continue Education Units.
