Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a high-quality in-service that meets national standards. Individuals are awarded CEUs by demonstrating that you understand and can apply the training that you have received. CEUs are often regarded as a bridge between in-service training and college credit.

CEUs are accepted nation-wide as a uniform unit of measurement of post secondary learning. They are used in many fields including nursing, social work, and early childhood. The learning activities approved for CEUs must be responsive to the educational needs that have been identified for the target audience. They must contribute directly to your professional competence.

Sponsoring agencies may submit applications for approval of learning activities quarterly for review by the CEU Council. These learning activities must meet higher standards than those set in-service training. They must be taught by qualified instructors and be able to show evidence of increase of skills, knowledge and ability of the participants. One early childhood CEU represents 10 contact hours of participation in an organized learning activity.

You can pay a nominal fee to attend and register the CEU classes. A transcript is available from Child Care Aware® of Kansas for a small fee.

CEU Handbook: The Handbook has been developed to help guide sponsoring agencies through the process of applying for and getting approval for CEU credits.

We hope you find this booklet helpful.
