What is a CEU?

CEUs are based upon the Carnegie Educational System and are referred to as Carnegie Educational Units. CEUs are awarded upon successful completion (grade of 70% or higher) of a single continuing education course. One CEU is awarded for every ten clock hours of course participation. Unless otherwise noted, all Academy continuing education courses are based upon an estimated forty clock hours of course participation, or 4 CEUs. The Academy can provide official transcripts to document the CEUs that students earn. Transcripts are $10 each and may be ordered online: Request for Transcript.
