The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is an internationally recognized unit of measurement to record an individual's successful participation in non-credit continuing education courses that meet appropriate criteria. A CEU is NOT a transferable credit to another institution.
As defined by EPCC's accrediting agency, The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS); "One Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is ten (10) contact hours of participation in an organized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction, and qualified instruction" are awarded to permit and encourage the adult student to utilize a host of continuing education resources to serve personal and professional needs.
Students who participate in and successfully complete EPCC courses that award CEUs will receive a certificate documenting the CEUs, from the sponsoring Continuing Education training department, that may be useful for promotion, certification, or licensure. Courses offering CEUs are clearly marked, for example: First Aid 8hrs/.8 CEUs.
