Information About Continuing Education Credit

ABOUT Continuing Education Credit
Continuing Education (CE) Credit approval is a comprehensive process that requires a detailed application, review by a group of qualified discipline specific professionals, and a follow-up evaluation of the course presentation.

Continuing Education Credit is based on the number of contact hours of learner interaction with the content of a learning activity.  Learning activities may include classroom instruction, self-paced home study, pre/post assignments and/or homework associated with a learning activity.  A contact hour is typically equal to one clock hour or 60 minutes but may be equal to 50 minutes based on the credentialing organization from which credit is requested
