A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is defined as ten contact hours of participation in a Florida International University (FIU) recognized continuing education experience under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction.

The number of CEUs is determined and approved by the director of Academic Planning and Accountability’s Continuing Education (CE) unit, upon recommendation of the program director.   In order for a program to be approved for CEUs, please contact the Continuing Education office at APA for approval guidelines.
