  • CEUs may be offered at one time or over several sessions, over a long period of time or at a conference as a defined track.
  • Quality may vary. Shop wisely!
  • CEUs are typically taught by instructors with a Bachelor’s degree or higher, are seasoned adult educators with experience and knowledge in the subject area.
