|A Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a measure of training hours used in
education programs and is most frequently used in licensed
professions. CEUs are typically required for licensed professionals to
maintain their license. Examples of people who need CEUs are educators,
nurses, mental health professionals, and social workers. People who participate in Stewards of Children and Facilitator Workshops are eligible to receive Continuing Education Units (CEU) for the trainings. |
Generally, a CEU is defined in hour increments. CEU requirements are mandated by certification bodies, professional associations and/or governmental licensing boards (at state and/or local levels). Qualifying training must be evaluated and approved by the governing board. Typically evidence of completion of training is necessary to obtain CEU credit. Usually that is a certificate of completion that includes the name of the course, the date the course was taken, the name of the participant and the signature of the facilitator/instructor. If your Stewards of Children participants wish to obtain CEU credit, they must sign in to the training on an attendance sheet and receive a certificate of completion.
Guidelines for obtaining CEUs are different in every state. Search the following licensing boards for your state's requirements and applications to receive for Stewards of Children training and Authorized Facilitator Workshops:
