FAQ’s for Continuing Education
- What is a CEU?
CEU is a continuing education unit given for continuing education.
CEU’s may be given in the form of classroom time or a seminar,
self-study programs, and conferences. For operators, one CEU equals 10
hours of continuing education contact time.
- When will CEU’s be required?
CEU’S will be required each renewal cycle. Please make sure the
courses you take are complete during the two years directly preceding
the request for license renewal. Courses taken during that period will
be applied as credit earned for that renewal cycle only.
- What is a Provider?
A Provider is a non-profit organization or educational institution
accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS)
that will be approving courses for CEU’s. The Certification and
Restoration Program will not be
approving every course and does NOT have a list of all the courses
approved. You need to contact one or all of the Providers to obtain an approved course list.
- Will training courses taken for meeting the application for
examination requirement be accepted for CEU’s?
YES, but only if you are taking a course required for the next
license class. For example, if you have a “C” license, you must take
the required training courses for the “B” license (within the renewal
period) for the training course to count as CEU credit. You can not
have a “C” license and take the course for your “A” license. It is
only for the next class.
