CEUs are awarded based upon the successful conclusion of a continuing education course, seminar, or workshop. One CEU is equivalent to ten clock hours of participation in a recognized continuing education program. CEUs are widely used in the sports and fitness industry by coaches, teachers, administrators, and other professionals to help determine salary increments, promotions, and maintenance of certifications.

Coaches who successfully complete any one of the above courses can purchase CEUs and print the CEU certificate online immediately by using their USC Certification Number.

Coaches may call the United States Sports Academy’s Department of Continuing Education at 251-626-3303 to pay by credit card and register for CEUs. The USC Certification Number is required for verification.
